It is extremely important that we maintain the integrity of the DMC. Therefore, a live proctor will be present (through video) during the length of the Exam. In addition, there are a number of technical checks put in place to detect if a test taker is trying to cheat. If it is determined that a test taker has attempted to cheat, the test taker will not receive a refund and will be banned from ever taking the test again virtually. The test taker can take the Exam in person at a conference or similar type of event.
