Remote proctoring is a new option for taking an IC&RC exam.  Instead of going to a testing site, it allows you to use your own computer to take the exam while a proctor in a different location watches you via the camera on your computer.   Besides not needing to travel to a testing site, another benefit of using a remote proctor is that proctors are available most any time of the day or night.  In order to use this option, the computer you plan to use must be compatible with the proctoring program.   This can and should be tested in advance before signing up for the remote proctoring option.   However, if you do not take the appropriate steps to ensure the computer you will be using is reliable as well as compatible with the remote testing program, neither the MCB nor the IC&RC remote testing company (SMT) will be able to refund you for that test attempt if you experience technical issues during the exam.  You will need to pay the $175 retesting fee to retake the exam.

The Missouri Credentialing Board (MCB) is a not-for-profit organization established in 1977 from the (then) Missouri Association of Alcoholism Counselors for the purpose of providing a recognized credential for qualified professionals working in the field of substance use disorders. MCB is a proud member of IC&RC, which protects the public by establishing standards and facilitating reciprocity for the credentialing of addiction-related professionals. The largest organization of its kind, IC&RC represents more than 40,000 professionals worldwide. The IC&RC web address is www.internationalcredentialing.org.
