* Minnesota requires online Certification Exams to be monitored by a disinterested third party. Kaplan offers proctoring services by an approved instructor at no charge at select locations. For information, please contact Kaplan’s Customer Service Department at 1-800-824-8742.

*Minnesota defines a proctor as: “Proctor” means a disinterested third party with no conflict of interest who verifies a student’s identity and processes an affidavit testifying that the student received no outside assistance with the course or examination.

Note: For each student, the chosen proctor is required to submit the original signed and dated verification information affidavit to the education provider’s MN approved Education Coordinator immediately after the conclusion of the exam.

* Note: This state requires forced progression (requires the user to successfully complete each page of the online course before being allowed to proceed to the next) and that your online study time be tracked. In order to successfully complete the course, you must complete the required number of hours while studying in the Course Contents Units of the online course. Your online course tracker will be displayed in the upper right hand corner of your page so that you can verify the time spent in the course is being tracked.
