Preparing for your Exams
In your Part B and Part C emails, we outline a description of what the exams will be based on. We strongly encourage you to take the time and prepare for these exams. As they are conducted and proctored online, you will have only one opportunity to write these exams. After completing the exams, you will have to wait one year in order to re-write both exams. Upon purchasing the certificate, the examinations do not expire. We do not expire these exams because we want to encourage applicants to take all of the additional time needed to prepare for these exams.
Conducting your Exams
Upon submitting your Examination Form and Consent Form, our team will contact you to inform that we will now process your ProctorFree account. This means within 24 business hours of sending this confirmation, you will receive an email ProctorFree to create a profile. Once you have created an account with ProctorFree, you will have access to the Part B and C examination. In order to conduct these exams, you will need to ensure that you meet the systematic requirements for ProctorFree in order to commence the recording and examination on your laptop. You are responsible for ensuring your system can process and administer the exam.
Once you have concluded the exams, you will receive another email from our Customer Service Team informing you that we will now commence proctoring footage review process. During this period of 3-5 days, we review all proctoring footage to ensure the rules of examination were met. Once our team confirms the footage has been cleared, our team will then proceed to issue your TNT certificate.
You can now start the application process with the applicable police service. An important part of the preparation stage includes the completion of your: Medical Examination Package, Fitness Logs/Journals and any further documentation that was stipulated in the police services pre-requisites.
