How do AEE virtual exams work? (CEM, CEA, CBCP, CMVP)


Registration for an AEE exam can be made while registering for an AEE course or through our AEE Exam Retake cohorts. All virtual exams are taken through the Proctor U platform. Once you have registered and paid the rewrite/exam only fee, your name will be forwarded to AEE and Proctor U.

You should receive an email from 3 to 5 days before the session starts. This email will contain a link for you to schedule your four-hour remote exam on their platform. Please make sure you check your junk inbox or quarantine folder for the email; if you still cannot find it once the course or the exam retake cohort has started, you must notify us at and request for the email to be resent to you.

Should you wish to reschedule your exam under the same cohort, you may do so through the same link provided by Proctor U; however, to modify an exam that is already scheduled, you need to do so at least 24h before the existing time slot.

You will need to schedule your exam at least 72 hours ahead of desired exam time to avoid premium fees charged directly to you by Proctor U. Exams scheduled less than 72 hours from their desired exam time will be charged a premium scheduling fee.

Candidates are unable to schedule their exams less than 24 hours from the desired exam time.



To ensure a smooth exam process, it is crutial to read all Proctor U remote proctoring procedures (especially the Proctor U Guidelines) below:

  • ProctorU Guidelines for more information about the exam and for the detailed AEE exam rules.
  • This document contains step-bystep instructions that show the invite and scheduling process.
  • Sample emails that candidates can expect to receive from Proctor U are shown here.
  • Details about the onboarding process can be found here.



You will receive a letter from CIET via email within 60 days of completion of the exam that will include the OFFICIAL test score. Please do not contact CIET or AEE about your test results before the end of the 60-day period. Exam results are not available on CIET’s or AEE’s website.

This is to inform you that the course date is too close to be able to ship hard copies of the material to you on time. If you are willing to use the material in secured PDF, receive the material later (likely after the course) and pay upon registration, please click OK to continue the registration process. Please note that the shipping process will start only when the course fees are paid in full and delays are to be expected. Many thanks!
