The Testing Experience

The Waiting Room

Typically, the first step in the Certification or Osteopathic Continuous Certification examination testing experience begins when the candidate enters the waiting area of the Prometric Testing Center. Candidates are strongly advised to plan to be at the center at least 30 minutes in advance of the scheduled test time. Once in the waiting area, test takers will be asked to sign in.  The proctor will call the candidate when it is time to begin the test.

Candidates are advised to arrive at the test center 30 minutes prior to the start of the scheduled test administration. Any candidate who arrives at the designated test center within 30 minutes after the scheduled start will be permitted to take the exam if the operating hours of the test center permits. Any candidate who arrives later than 30 minutes will not be permitted to take the examination and will be considered as "no-show."
