Greencastle, April 23, 2020: More students and eager professionals are enrolling into online classes and engaging in continuing education while they stay safely at home. During this pandemic, ETA® International is partnering with ExamRoom.AI to bring you AI-integrated online exam proctoring solutions will pay for the remote proctoring service as a thank you to the trade association’s customers.

To take a remotely-proctored ETA certification exam through ExamRoom.AI, all remote examinees must have a working web cam and microphone. Follow the procedure below to schedule ETA certification exams or FCC commercial radio license exams:

  1. The examinee will use the following link to register for an ETA certification exam: https://www.eta-i.org/remote_proctoring_registration_form.html.
  2. Once processed, the examinee will need to create an account with ETA’s remote proctoring partner, Exam Room.AI, and choose a day/time for the examination. ETA will send a welcome email with that information.
  3. On the day of the scheduled examination, the examinee will log into the ExamRoom.AI website where they created their account at Exam Room.AI, click “start exam”, and follow the prompts. Once connected to the onboarding agent, the agent will walk them through the process of onboarding. After onboarding is done, the examinee will be transferred to the proctor and the proctor will give the examinee their ETA Trapeza online testing credentials to log in and take the examination. Once logged into Trapeza, the examinee will verify their account information, pay for the examination if they didn’t prepay, and finally take the examination.
  4. In addition to the cost of the ETA certification test fee, ExamRoom.AI charges a fee for remote test proctoring. ETA will pay for the initial proctoring fee, but if an examinee fails the exam or fails to show for the scheduled day/time, they will be charged a fee of $14 for a two-hour exam and $18 for a three-hour exam if/when they retake/take the aforementioned exam. ETA will still offer a free retake for all eligible certification exams but the examinee must pay the ExamRoom.AI fee.
  5. Minor examinees who needs a consent form for the video/audio requirements of remote proctoring, can get it here: https://www.eta-i.org/remote_proctoring_minor_consent_form.html.
