Online Testing

We are pleased to announce that the OSE will now be offering the Entry Level Firefighter, and Entry Level Police Officer Exam online through ProctorU. There is a $40 fee paid by the applicant to ProctorU for their services. The OSE receives none of the payment.

ProctorU is a service that monitors you while you’re taking your exam online to ensure that no cheating takes place, and to help you be successful. Using this service allows you the convenience of testing from home, at a department’s computer lab or in a private room at a library. They are available 24/7, so you can take your test whenever it’s most convenient for you.

You will only be allowed to take the online exam ONCE EVERY 30 DAYS. There are no Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations available through online testing. If you require special accommodations, you will need to go through the normal testing procedures. (PLEASE CLICK HERE)

Before you can take the exam you must apply with the OSE using the links provided below.

If you are requesting Veteran’s Points you will be required to submit your supporting documents separately from the application. You must email them to before you take the exam. Failure to timely provide the documents will result in you not receiving any Veteran’s Points. ***Veteran’s Points are up to 5 points and only applied to a passing score***

ProctorU recommends you check your equipment prior to your proctored exam to ensure your equipment meets the technical requirements. Please make sure you have an updated version of Google Chrome (preferred) or Firefox and have downloaded the ProctorU extension (for Chrome or for Firefox).

Applications can be submitted at any time, but the OSE will *review them once per business day. You may only take the online exam once every thirty days. After we have received your application, if it is accepted, we will email you with the information you need to sign up with ProctorU.

*If you apply during the last three days of the calendar month, your application will be processed, but you will not be able to schedule your exam until the first business day of the following month.
