  1. Follow the instructions in the guides below to install the software (if not already on your laptop).
  2. Once installed, an icon will appear on your desktop with version 8.2.4.
  3. Follow the instructions in the guides below to test the software, upload your test (Qualification Exam) and get approval for use of Securexam (CA).


  • To install Securexam, your laptop must meet these minimum hardware and software requirements:
    • 1 GB of RAM
    • 100 MB of free hard drive space (required to run application)
    • A free USB port  
  • Securexam is certified to run on PC-based laptop computers only. This means that Apple/iOS products and tablets (iOs, Windows, Android) are not allowed, even if they run Windows.
  • Securexam will only run on Microsoft Windows Operating System, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10.
  • If you are using a firm computer, please check with your IT department first as they may be installing this for you.  However, you will still need to do Step 3 above.
