Online Course Final Examination
The Illinois Fire Service Institute has adopted a new Course Examination and Evaluation policy as of July 1, 2011. This policy change has been made to bring IFSI’s testing practices in line with industry standards, as well as to improve the security of exam administration.
As a result, all final examinations that IFSI administers for their courses are to be proctored by a trained IFSI instructor / proctor.
Exam dates for the online courses are either the last Wednesday or Thursday of the month. The date, time and location are determined based on proctor availability and site location availability.
You must take the exam on one of the two nights provided. If you know now that you cannot attend one of these test days for this class you should sign up for a class at another time. Students with extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis by the eLearning Program Director regarding taking their exam at a later date.
