If an education officer (EO) is indicated as “required” above, you will need an EO to proctor exams for the course. An EO cannot be a student's relative, friend, coworker, or someone who works for the student. The EO address must be a business address. Provide, change, or update your EO information by completing the EO Information Update form. To ensure we have the most updated EO information, you must provide the EO information every semester – even if it is the same EO.
For those able to come to campus, CAETE provides free proctoring services. Contact us at 303-492-6331 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an exam appointment.
If you have any questions regarding who qualifies to be an EO, see EO information or contact CAETE.
