Photos of Test Center

Test centers are required to provide a distraction-free, secure testing environment with continuous candidate surveillance. A separate area is required for candidates to check in that would not disturb exams that are in progress.

Photos need to be clearly labeled and sent by email to the appropriate region. Email addresses will be provided on the confirmation screen. Remember to include your company name and address on the email so that we may process your application in a timely manner. The photos should show the following areas:

  1. The exterior of the building, showing the company’s logo and/or the building’s name or address. If there isn’t a sign outside the building, you should also include a photo of the entrance of the foyer showing a sign indicating that the test center is in the building.
  2. The check-in/reception area, showing that there is a PC for checking the candidate’s details and exam schedule. The check-in area must be near, but not inside the test room as the check-in process must be performed before allowing the candidates to go into the test room.
  3. A neutral background available in the check-in area. Can you please confirm that there is a neutral background in the check-in area? The digital camera and e-pad (ESP kit) must be attached to the administrator’s workstation to enable him/her to take a photo and capture the signature of a candidate when they check-in for some exams. The photo of the candidate must be taken against a neutral background, for example a white painted wall. Please send us a photo of this area.
  4. The waiting room / waiting area (to show that there is somewhere suitable for candidates to sit down and wait if they arrive a bit early for their appointment).
  5. A suitable secure storage facility for candidates to leave their personal belongings. The photo must show that the storage is lockable, and it must not be in the testing room (ideally, it should be in or near the check-in area). Candidates have to leave all personal items before they can go into the test room.
  6. The test room — ideally one single photo of the room, showing all the test PCs (if the application form says 6 PCs, we should be able to see 6 PCs in the photo).

    Each test workstation needs to be approx 1.2m wide. Each workstation must be separated from the neighbouring workstation by a space of at least 1.2m, or a partition. If there is not enough space between the workstations, please state that you will use alternate workstations, and reduce the number of test PCs on the application form. If the application has already been sent please state this on the email with the photos attached.
  7. The test administrator’s position. This photo should show where the administrator will be located during delivery of the exams.
    • The photo should show the administrator’s seat in the test room if monitoring will be in the test room during exams.
  8. The test administrator’s view. This photo should show the administrator’s view of the candidates showing all of the delivery workstations.
    • If monitoring will be done via a viewing window, the photo should be taken from the test administrator’s position, showing what can be seen through the window from that position.
    • If monitoring will be via camera, the photo should be of the screen the test administrator sees, showing that all candidates can be continuously monitored simultaneously.
