Microsoft Teams

Plan examinations are all conducted over Microsoft Teams, you do not need a Microsoft account. It is the responsibility of the applicant to be prepared to use this service before their appointments. Verify that your voice, video, and sound are all functioning properly—a camera is not necessary. We ask that all applicants join your virtual plan examination five minutes early to avoid last-minute difficulties. Plan Examiners are not able to troubleshoot technical issues.
