Online Examination

Eligibility

You are only eligible to sit the online examination if you:

  • are an overseas-trained practitioner; and
  • have submitted a completed overseas registration application and submitted your fee payment; and
  • the MRTB’s Registration Committee has reviewed your application, and deemed that your qualification is not equivalent to the required New Zealand standard; and
  • you have been offered the opportunity to sit and pass the online examination as a pathway for registration under the Health Practitioners Competences Assurance Act 2003.

Registering for the online examination

Once payment has been confirmed, and the Examination Rules Agreement has been signed and returned, we will provide you with the URL to the online examination portal and a unique authorisation code.

Location

The online examination is administered by Kryterion Inc. a company located in Arizona, USA. The online examination is completed via an online proctoring set-up. Online proctoring means that you log on through the internet to take your examination. You are monitored by a proctor employed by Kryterion Inc during your entire testing session in real-time. This monitoring involves your face, voice, desk and workspace being captured via a webcam, and a recording is made of these images for examination security and the integrity of the examination process.

If you are currently enrolled to sit the Online Examination, please contact the Examinations Coordinator for further information.

Delivery

The MRTB’s online examination will be delivered through an online environment – and you will need to have access to a computer to sit the examination.

The exam will be overseen by an examination proctor whose role is to verify your identity and ensure that the instructions specified by the MRTB are carried out.

Identification required

You will be required to provide the exam proctor with two forms of identification, one of which must be a current, valid government-issued photo identification.  You must also provide your unique authorisation code.

Should the exam proctor have a reasonable concern about your ability to properly establish your identity or there is concern that identity documents are being misused, you will be refused access to the exam.  Anyone who is refused access to the exam forfeits the prepaid examination fee.
