Cloud-based Testing System for Professional Certification Exams Launched
September 11, 2017

The International Code Council (ICC) has announced the launch of a new cloud-based testing system, Proctored Remote Online Testing Option (PRONTO), which enables candidates to take ICC certification exams at their convenience on their home or office computer.

The ICC Assessment Center provides educational and credentialing services supported by the International Codes (I-Codes), a coordinated, comprehensive set of construction, fire and energy codes used in the U.S. and around the globe. In the past, test takers had to travel to approved locations for certification exams. The new cloud-based system allows users to take proctored ICC certification exams remotely. This system will supplement the brick and mortar computer-based exam sites and paper-and-pencil testing that were the only options previously available.

“The Code Council is the first building safety professional credentialing organization to provide this convenient testing option to their candidates,” said ICC Director of the Assessment Center Michelle Porter. “We are always looking for new ways to increase the availability and ease of access to exams for our members and other test takers, and we are excited to be able to offer this innovative service.”

PRONTO also allows users to immediately see their exam results. ICC currently has 23 exams available online with plans for additional offerings in the future. For more information, visit the PRONTO website.
