The BCSP updated some of its procedures for exam scheduling, online proctoring, and eligibility extensions due to Covid-19.
They recommend scheduling your exam as Pearson VUE testing centers have made adjustments to keep candidates safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Online proctoring is not available as the BCSP has determined that significant work remains to meet the BCSP standards.
Finally, they have granted candidates whose eligibility expires this June a 90-day extension, and those who expire in July a 60-day extension.

Even though test centers are beginning to open, you can take the CHMM exam by remote online live proctoring as a testing alternative to taking exams at a test center. Live Remote Online Proctored exams may be taken at home or work, but require a quiet, distraction-free, well-lit room with no other people, pets, electronics, or test aids. With the use of a webcam and your computer, your exam is delivered to your computer and then is visually and audibly monitored by a Kryterion Certified Online Proctor in a live session. The use of a personal calculator is not permitted. However, an on-screen calculator will be available.
More details can be found in the Candidate Handbook at ihmm.org/chmm.
