Examinations are computer-based examinations. After you have been approved by the Maine Plumbers' Examining Board, you may take your examination at any of Prov's testing facilities nationwide. Within Maine, Prov has five (5) testing centers where candidates can take their examination. These testing centers are located in Auburn, Bangor, Calais, Portland and Presque Isle. Dependent on your internet connection and computer capabilities you may also take your examination via a remote proctor using your own computer at home.
Before you can schedule an exam, you must complete an Exam Application. You may apply online for an exam, or download an examination (PDF) application and submit it, along with the application fee, to the Board. If the Board approves your application, you will be sent via email notification on the procedures to schedule your exam appointment.
IMPORTANT: Applicants must receive Board approval prior to sitting for an examination. Examination scores of applicants who take the examination prior to receiving Board approval will be null and void.
