Creating an ExamTools Account

The ExamTools ecosystem has two distinct environments for Volunteer Examiners.

  • The primary website is found at http://exam.tools, and is considered the Production environment. This is where all active Volunteer Examiners need to have an account in order to perform live exams.
  • ExamTools also maintains a Sandbox environment that is used for troubleshooting program errors and general VE training. This is a separate database, with different user names and passwords from the Production environment. It is not required to create a Sandbox account to perform live testing; however, your Team Lead may require training sessions in the Sandbox. You might also be interested in using it to follow along with documentation and walk-through videos.
