Central Arizona College Testing Centers highly encourage you to be mindful of the following recommendations:
- If you are ill, exposed, or at risk of exposing others, please reschedule your test.
- Use the hand sanitizing station upon entering the Testing Center.
- We sanitize each workstation prior to and following each use.

The CAC Testing Center is operating under strict protocols. Therefore, it is imperative that you are on time for your scheduled test. Late arrivals may lose their appointments. If you know you will be late, please call the your respective Testing Center (see information below). Our office phone is staffed only during scheduled testing days.
Central Arizona College partners with many organizations to provide a secure and reliable testing facility for persons seeking to take Non-CAC exams. Test takers must have an official government issued photo identification in order to test. Fees vary by test. Please contact the Academic Testing Center for further details.
ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows students to take an exam from the comfort of home. ProctorU is available 24/7, however, students will need to schedule a proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on-demand scheduling fees. Creating a ProctorU account is simple. You can do so by clicking here.
In order to use ProctorU, students will need a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a windows or apple Operating System, and a government issued photo id. ProctorU recommends that you visit test-it-out.proctoru.com prior to the first proctoring session to test your equipment. We recommend students click on the button that says “connect to a live person” to fully test out your equipment. Please make sure that you are using the current version of your browser.
Additionally, please visit and review the test-taker resource center here. You should expect the startup process with the proctor to take about 10-15 minutes. However, this time will not affect your exam time. Please feel free to direct any questions to the student support team via the live chat within your account.
We offer a variety of testing through Pearson Vue, including; Technology Certification, GED, and Teacher Certification, just to name a few.
Students should register, schedule, and pay for testing through these websites:
The HESI exam is conducted by nursing schools as a function of a university or college nursing program. You may also hear it called the HESI A2, the HESI Admission Assessment Exam, or the Evolve Reach A2.

Please contact the Central Arizona College Nursing Program for more details as to which module applies to your certificate/degree.
