Managing associations

To assign rights to other members within your organization to perform duties such as proctoring, purchasing exams, and reporting, they will need to be associated to your Certiport Authorized Testing Center (CATC). To associate someone to your CATC, they must first have a user account.

Note: Each person associated will only need one User Account, which can have multiple roles assigned to it. The basic account created at Certiport is the same one that all test candidates will also need to maintain.

After creating an association for the user, you will need to determine which roles they should have access to. The different roles assigned to each user will determine the privileges and functions they will be allowed to perform on behalf of your CATC.

Changing your default role

Every profile at begins with the "Test Candidate" role. It's likely you will end up with multiple roles after you set up your CATC. If you use one role more than others you can specify the role that is selected by default after you log in to the website.

  1. Log in at

  4. Click the "Edit" button
