    I would like to have Proctoru (As the remote proxy)...This is a third party company that does these type of remote testing. (Or some other third party company)...we need to be really careful.

    https://www.proctoru.com/

    This will keep the fidelity of the process. If we use just ad hoc (Remote Testing), there will be a chance of cheating on the exam, and so on...

    My take on this..

    I recently used the remote exam to upgrade my licence. I liked it much better than in-person testing. The VE team from MIT was extremely helpful. Hopefully, this type of testing continues in perpetuity.
