Finding a Proctor

The current RESNET regulations about using a local proctor can be found here. In order to register for NEHERS to set up the test, you will need to provide the name and email address of the proctor, as well as the location, time and date that the student has arranged with the proctor. 

It is up to the candidate to locate a proctor or testing center that can provide the services and, if necessary, the equipment listed below. Generally, public libraries, community or technical colleges, utilities, government agencies, and universities are able to provide the necessary services at a nominal fee. 

Computer Requirements:  High speed internet access (not dial up), with Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows 7 (Windows 98 or Windows ME can be used if Visual Basic 6.0 SP5 is installed).

Locate a proctor and schedule the exam at a date and time convenient to you. Please also note, as you consider scheduling your proctoring times, that NEHERS office hours are Tuesdays 9am-12pm and 1-5pm, Wednesdays 1-5pm, and Thursdays 9am-12pm and 1-5pm. While you may schedule your test at any time during the week, please note that you may not be able to reach our staff if you schedule your test at a time that is outside of office hours.
The proctor must agree to:

  • Check photo ID of student;
  • Help student log on to exam site (;
  • Provide student with Username and Password to access exam (will be sent to proctor by NEHERS registrar);
  • Visually monitor student during exam to verify that student is not assisted by anyone, does not make or receive any phone calls, does not access e-mail or text messaging during the exam, and does not leave the examination area until the exam is completed.

To allow NEHERS enough time to communicate with your proctor and confirm the arrangements, please register for your exam at least 7 business prior to your exam date.
