I.Use of new Guardian Browser required
Beginning with the May 2023 Online Skills Testing period, candidates must use the new Guardian Browser to connect to their ProctorU proctoring session for their NCRA online skills tests. Guardian is a secure browser created by Meazure Learning, the company that created the ProctorU Platform we use for remote proctoring services.
The new Guardian Browser:
- Eliminates compatibility issues with our testing and proctoring platform, is easier to support and troubleshoot, and provides quick assistance through highly visible buttons to reach chat support and help articles.
- Presents a clean and secure channel to access our Skills Tests without requiring additional, complicated extensions to assist candidates, and it provides a secure testing environment.
- Is compatible with JAWS and NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac, allowing candidates with visual accommodations to test successfully.
NOTE: Download the Guardian Browser PRIOR to your testing appointment.

II.Use of wired headphones required
NCRA is instituting mandatory use of wired headphones for all Skills Tests effective with our May 1-20, 2023, testing period. The headphone requirement helps to ensure that test audio is heard in the best environment and aids in test security. No Bluetooth headphones are permitted.
