How Do I Appear For The ECCCS*, CCDA And/Or CCCA Exam(s)?

ECCCS*/CCDA/CCCA Online Exam(s) (With Proctoring)

The ECCCS/CCDA/CCCA exam(s) is held online and monitored live by a professional proctor.

IMPORTANT: We place a strong emphasis on protecting the integrity and credibility of the ECCCS/CCDA/CCCA exam(s). The online exam(s) is proctored live, the computer screen is recorded and advanced/continuous A.I. scanning of the student is carried out to ensure that no external assistance is solicited or given. Based on the proctor’s final assessment (including a post-exam review of the screen recording), if cheating is suspected, the exam will be cancelled and the student will be permanently barred from taking future exams. Additionally, the student’s SCCSI membership will be revoked, the ECCCS/CCDA/CCCA examination fee will not be refunded and LMS access will be cancelled. We reserve a right to amend exam criteria.
