Prometric vs. On-site Calculator

A basic calculator will be given to you if you’re taking your CPCU® exam at a Prometric Testing Center, this basic calculator is a very simple battery powered calculator with basic numbers. No alphanumeric numbers or graphing functions.

On-site centers do not provide calculators; you will need to bring your own approved calculator for your exam.

How to Approve Calculator – IMPORTANT

If you plan to bring your own calculator to an exam, you MUST print and bring the “calculator policy” portion of this confirmation notice published by The Institutes to the testing center to verify The Institutes’ criteria for an acceptable calculator. Information regarding the appropriate guidelines and detailed requirements of acceptable calculators can also be found within the publication.
