ICAPGen regularly needs volunteers to proctor exams onsite at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Exams are administered on a quarterly schedule.

- If examinee has questions, pause the time and speak to an ICAPGen testing committee member
- Ensure the examinee is not interrupted
- Time each section of the examinee’s exam
- Politely remind the examinee when time is running out
- Ensure that all copies, notes, or materials created during testing are returned with the exam
- Hold the examinee’s electronics during the exam
Proctors will receive a document with additional details after they register and are selected to proctor an exam.
