How do I schedule my exam?

Course with Webcam Exam:

If you have completed a course with a WebCam exam, you will use the links provided on your course page to set up an account with Examity, our proctoring partner and then schedule your exam.  You will need a desktop or laptop computer with a camera and microphone.  Once you set up your account you will be asked to run a system check to ensure your computer will run the exam.

Course without Webcam Exam:

If you have completed a course without a Webcam exam, you will need to register into a TrainCan testing center (additional charges may apply). Contact us at with your name and PIN number or contact your GFS rep to see if they have an available proctor.
