FLEX Testing

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) announces FLEX testing, an online proctored exam option that allows students to securely and conveniently complete exams on personal computers from the privacy of their own homes or offices, 24/7. The IAPMO FLEX option may be used for Uniform Plumbing Code® (UPC), Uniform Mechanical Code® (UMC), California Plumbing Code® (CPC), and California Mechanical Code® (CMC) Inspector, Plans Examiner, and Inspector Reciprocity exams.

“FLEX testing upholds the integrity of IAPMO’s trusted and respected examination and certification process while providing a flexible, modern, and convenient way for candidates to earn their professional credentials, ” said Tony Marcello, Vice President of IAPMO Training and Credential Services. “IAPMO testing is flexible with time and location but will also continue to be flexible with regard to exam format. FLEX is just one option of several, as we will continue to offer paper and pencil exams and on-site computer-based proctored exam options.”

FLEX allows students who have pushed off testing because of busy schedules or remote locations to earn credentials that will help take their careers to the next level. When choosing the IAPMO FLEX option, there is no need to travel to a testing center, no need to take time away from work or family, and no need to wait for a scheduled exam or available testing center; students have the flexibility to complete exams from an internet-connected home or a private office, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and immediately see their test results.

FLEX's online remote proctoring eliminates exam security concerns and ensures the privacy of students through anonymity and secure web servers.
