CQE Remote Prometric exam
I am planning to attend my CQE exam next month remotely (https://rpcandidate.prometric.com/).
Can you please share your experience attending this exam remotely.
I wanted to know if reference materials ( like 'The certified quality engineer handbook') and calculators are allowed during the remote exam?

Hi Vijay Bhuvanendran Nair Goury Kutty‍ - Be sure to do the readiness check prior to your exam. I do know of a few people who ran into firewall issues if they were using their work computer. https://asq.org/cert/computer-based-testing

If scheduling your exam for remote proctoring, it is extremely important that you have a stable internet connection. Please perform a system readiness check prior to scheduling your exam via this method and once again closer to your exam appointment date to verify that your system is still meeting requirements

And yes - you can bring reference materials and a calculator https://p.widencdn.net/j47bx7/cert-remote-appt-info-flyer
Hope this helps - Good Luck!
Hi Trish
Thanks for your reply.
Yes I checked my system readiness and it was good. I am doing it from my personal computer at home and the connection is pretty stable. Good to know about the reference material and calculator policy.
Thanks again.

ok - GOOD! then you should be set. Good Luck!!!
Its good to hear that you intend to use your personal computer, because even though the system check via the browser worked on my work PC, the exam software's system checker didn't, even though I have used my work PC for many proctored exams albeit from different vendors.
VUE are quite anal about their secure exam room policies, and the person that does this check with you follows their rules to the letter. VUE classed my exam room as not being safe even though all other proctired exams had no issue with it, so if you dont want to get frustrated before taking the exam make sure your room complies with all VUEs little points (most of which are quite petty).
Hello Vijay,

Can you please share your experience after finishing your test? I am a bit worried about my connection because I will only be using WIFI.

Thank you and good luck with your exam :)
