PLEASE NOTE! EXAM REQUIREMENTS: The 2023 Spring TN CXT Examination will be provided online via live remote proxy. Upon completion of the
classroom training, students will be given access to the online exam, to be taken on the Exam Day (May 14) at the time of their choosing, but no later than the following Friday, May 19. Examinees will be proctored via a live video proxy website using the individual’s webcam/audio feed from start to finish of their exam session.
In order to utilize the online exam, individuals must be able to meet the technical requirements which may be referenced here: https://www.proctorfree.com/technical-requirements.

Following the initial training session, CXT examinees will receive an email from ProctorFree.com (our live proxy website) with instructions on how to set-up your ProctorFree account in preparation for the online Examination.
