Remote proctoring: a new option for the TDM Examination

November 12, 2020

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC) along with National Assessment Collaboration Practice-Ready Assessment (NAC PRA) programs are pleased to announce that an additional exam modality will be offered for the Therapeutics Decision-Making (TDM) Examination starting in January 2021.

TDM Examination candidates will have the option to write the exam in person at selected Prometric test centres in Canada or to use remote proctoring. Remote proctoring offers candidates the opportunity to test anywhere globally, as long as the computer configuration and internet speed requirements are met. The remote-proctored exam will be delivered through Prometric’s ProProctor remote assessment platform.

This new option will allow candidates to write the exam in the environment of their choice and will offer flexibility in pursuing their route to licensure. For more information, visit the ProProctor check-in web page.
