The ExamTools ecosystem has two distinct environments for Volunteer Examiners.

  • The primary website is found at, 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.
