Cochrane Public Library Proctoring Terms and Conditions

The Cochrane Public Library supports the lifelong learning goals of the Town of Cochrane community. The Library will support these endeavours through proctoring services subject to the requirements of the issuing educational institutions and the availability of the Librarians and library resources.

Examination proctoring will be provided for a fee of $20.00 per exam, plus any associated printing costs @ $0.30 per page.


  • Students must know their usernames and passwords to log onto their student accounts. 
  • All exams will be written in the open area. We recommend that student's bring along ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones as we cannot guarantee a quiet writing environment.
  • All exam booking and communication must be done by the student, not the parents or guardians.


  • The Cochrane Public Library does not guarantee continuous supervision.
