Before the exam, you will need to complete an identity check: have a valid piece of government-issued Photo ID nearby prior to beginning the exam and visual check of your physical environment. If a valid and clear ID is not presented at the time of the exam a candidate's results will be witheld until identification can be verified.
Exam Requirements and Expectations
All candidates must adhere to the following during all FMI exams:
The FMI’s online proctoring software, Proctorio, will be monitoring your exam to detect any suspicious activity or cheating. All suspicious activity will be flagged and looked into after the exams have been completed to allow candidates to complete the exam without interruption.
During the exam you may open your email to contact email@example.com in case of an issue without penalty. Please note your screen will be monitored during this time. If you happen to disconnect from the exam platform, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible for further instructions.
Invalid Exams: If you do not submit your exam at the 4-hr 5-min mark either by uploading the file through Proctorio or by email to the FMI, your exam will be considered invalid and may not be graded, unless you have communicated with the FMI during the exam and attached a screenshot of the issues that you incurred.
