Technical requirements

On this page you will find all the hardware, software, environment, communication, and admin level permission requirements that must be met to ensure compatible and consistent exam delivery across all our delivery systems and modalities.

Live-in-the-Application (LITA) exams have individual program requirements that are above and beyond those of the exam delivery software; refer to each individual program for detailed information. This page also lists which exams are available in which delivery system.

Notice: Changes to our technical requirements for Communications were implemented after the 8-19-2023 maintenance outage and will apply to all delivery systems and modalities listed on this page. Please review the "Communication Ports & IP addresses" sections in the Exam Delivery requirements for detailed info.
Note: Exams cannot be delivered during times of periodic maintenance. View the periodic maintenance schedule.
