“Expect change. Analyze the landscape. Take the opportunities. Stop being the chess piece; become the player. It’s your move.” — Tony Robbins
Over 15 years ago before the concept of on demand Proctors existed, the only place that seemed remotely cooperative with the idea of providing a Proctor for an exam was a local library. There were brick and mortar testing companies, brick and mortar testing centers, general hiring agencies who knew nothing about what a Proctor was, but there was no service specializing in just Proctors for exam administrations.
Jesse Cooper and Scott Brush, after assessing and amassing years of experience in proctoring high-stakes certification exams in person, saw an opportunity. They understood the demand for live in-person Proctors, and opened a nationwide company that provides access to this network of Proctors that Proctors, Inc. has accumulated. This gap in the field was the catalyst to create a boutique recruiting agency specializing in just Proctors.
What would that type of service look like and how would it operate? Mr. Brush crafted a system of hiring procedures and Mr. Cooper spent the time needed to recruit and maintain Proctors nationwide, and soon after in Guam, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
This streamlined and specialized service became the quickest way to ensure a qualified, and prepared Proctor would be available to administer an exam anywhere at anytime. It eliminated the carbon footprint of hotel, flight, and travel time. Instead, Proctors, Inc. sends a local Proctor to provide the exam administration safely and securely.
Over the years Proctors, Inc. has continued to gather contacts, throughout the nation, to be prepared to staff your exam in a moment’s notice.
