Detailed description

Our Online Invigilated Exam process enables a candidate to sit the certification exam at a location of your choice, supervised by a MIBoC approved invigilator.

The approved person who invigilates the exam must monitor the candidate in person and be in the same room for the entire duration of the exam and ensure that the MIBoC procedures are followed exactly. Your nominated invigilator must be a third and neutral party. You may choose a Human Resource Representative, Training Coordinator, University or Community College Examination Center, one of your colleagues or any authorized person that meets the Invigilator criteria. The invigilator MUST NOT be a close relative, friend, manager, or direct report supervisor.

To maintain the security and integrity of the exam, it is a requirement that the exam process be video recorded. Detailed instructions for this will be sent to both the candidate and invigilator when the application has been approved.

The Online Exam Process works like this:

Once an application is received,  the Exams Team will contact your invigilator and confirm your invigilator accepts the MIBoC examination requirements.

Independent Exams are to be taken online.

Detailed instructions on how the exam should be conducted will be e-mailed to both the candidate and the invigilator upon approval of the application.

The applicant is then allowed to begin the exam whilst being video recorded and supervised by the invigilator. The invigilator will ensure that the applicant completes the exam within the time allowed and that no external assistance or unauthorized reference material is used.

At the end of an online exam, the system automatically sends the answer responses to MIBoC for processing.

Once the video has been reviewed and the exam has been graded, the exam results are e-mailed to the applicant.

If the candidate meets all of the certification requirements, the certification is then processed and a link to their digital certificate is emailed to the applicant. The applicant’s name will also appear on the website list of certified analysts.

In the event that a candidate is unsuccessful in passing the certification exam, the candidate can apply to re-sit the exam allowing 30 days between attempts.  A candidate is given three attempts to pass the exam, if the candidate does not pass on three consecutive attempts, they will be required to wait 12 months before another attempt is granted.
