  • Once registered, click on "My Assessments" to continue (see image below) to set up your computer for the exam. 
  • IMPORTANT: Installing Sentinel and verification of Biometrics is required so be sure to allow plenty of time for this to avoid the cancelation penalties (24 hour minimum to cancel or re-schedule).
  • Install Sentinel - if error message please search Kryterion Support by how to download Sentinel on your particular operating system (ie MAC, windows etc)

  • IMPORTANT:  Biometric verification includes a photo that should have a background free of excessive light (not in front of a window) and face and eyes should be level. If you launch your test and your are having difficulty these biometrics may need to be reset - you can utilize Kryterion Chat to help you when launching the exam.
  • Keystroke verification is set and should match your normal typing speed.  This is done several times before confirming
  • Please complete all biometrics well in advance of the exam to avoid any issues or cancellation penalty
