I’m under age 18. Are there special requirements for testing?

PTCB does not have an age requirement to be eligible for a PTCB exam, but special testing requirements for online proctored exams exist for candidates under the age of 18.

Candidates Taking Online Proctored Exams

During the OnVUE check-in process, the candidate will select that they are under 18 years of age and the proctor will do the following:

  1. Request the presence of a legal guardian
  2. Verify the guardian's ID
  3. Ask permission from the guardian to allow the candidate to test

Once the guardian grants permission, they will be asked to leave the room to allow the candidate to test. 

If you have any questions about testing policies for minors, please contact Pearson VUE.
