ProctorU announced today that AV8 Flight School will be the first drone aviation company in the UK to offer virtual training and invigilation for its drone aviation training including the Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) examination.
AV8 Flight School is pioneering drone aviation training as the only company in the UK to deliver a fully-supported virtual e-learning programme. Their CAA-approved course is the only curriculum of its kind that allows students to take course assessments and the PfCO examination with proctored online exam delivery providing the flexibility to choose how, where and when they sit for exams. The quality of training content paired with student convenience and flexibility is unmatched in the industry.
“ProctorU’s automated invigilation platform paired with their Live Launch service allows our students to concentrate on the actual exam and not worry about the process of getting into the exam,”says Jon Anderson, CEO of AV8.“ProctorU greets our students with friendly human interaction and makes sure everything runs smoothly, resolving any technical issues that may arise.”
ProctorU Auto with Live Launch uses a live human proctor to verify test-taker identity and secure their testing environment, then launches them into their exam where an automated platform driven by artificial intelligence (AI) monitors and flags suspicious behaviors for review. The entire process is recorded, providing the necessary evidence in the event that a test-taker attempts to gain an unfair advantage or steal exam content.
“We’re excited to partner with a company pioneering online migration in their industry. Remote invigilation is mutually beneficial to test-takers as well as training and certification bodies,”says Scott McFarland, ProctorU CEO. “It provides test-takers a convenient, cost-effective way to earn degrees, certifications or credentials while giving companies the ability to reach a wider audience of candidates at a lower cost than setting up a physical testing center infrastructure.”
ProctorU provides a full suite of online proctoring and identity management solutions for education, professional development and credentialing organizations. With patented, 24/7 live proctoring and a fully-automated platform, both backed by artificial intelligence, ProctorU offers a powerful, convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional test centers. ProctorU increases access to online learning while ensuring exam integrity and accountability for any test-taker.
