MRO ASSISTANT CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION CHEATING POLICY
Each candidate for certification and recertification is expected to take the examination without the assistance of other
individuals/colleagues. Candidates are required to agree to the following Statement of Integrity as part of the
I attest that I will personally take the examination without the assistance of other individuals. I agree to uphold the
integrity of the examination and will take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the questions, answers or other
information contained therein during or after the examination. I will not attempt to copy, print or make any record of
the test questions (electronic or written), and I will not assist another candidate or communicate with others about, or
otherwise disclose or disseminate any information or content from this examination, verbally, in written form,
electronic form or any other form.
A candidate who violates this agreement has breached the integrity of the examination process. If a candidate is
suspected of a violation of this agreement, the following notifications and appeals procedures shall apply:
1. Written notice of the suspected violation will be provided to the candidate.
2. The candidate will have fourteen (14) days to respond in writing. If a response is not received within fourteen days,
the examination will be nullified, no score will be reported, and the candidate will not be certified.
3. After considering the written response, MROCC will do one of the following:
a. Determine that no violation has occurred and notify the candidate of this fact in writing. In such cases the
examination will be scored and processed as usual.
b. Request further clarification or explanation. In such cases, the candidate must respond in writing within eight (8)
days of receiving request from MROCC. If a response is not received within eight days, the examination will be
nullified, no score will be reported, and the candidate will not be certified.
c. Determine that a violation, as described in the above Statement of Integrity, has occurred. In such cases, the
candidate’s submitted test responses will not be scored and the candidate will not be allowed to retake the
certification examination or apply for a future certification.
4. If a violation is determined, the candidate may appeal MROCC’s decision. In such cases, the candidate may appeal to
MROCC’s Ad Hoc Appeals Committee or its designee. Such committee or designee will interview the candidate and
perform any additional investigation considered to be appropriate to resolve the matter. The candidate is expected to
comply with this investigation. Any failure to comply will result in the determination of a violation. The outcome of the
investigation will be one of the determinations a-c. In such cases, no further appeals will take place.
An individual certified by MROCC is expected to maintain the integrity of the examination. A certified individual
violating MROCC’s cheating policy or Statement of Integrity is subject to Certification Revocation as described in
MROCC’s Revocation Policy.
