ARE Online Webcam

Hi, I’d like to know if you all have recommendations for webcams to take the ARE online. I purchased one that passed the systems check, allowed me to take my photo and that of my ID, but once I started the exam it did not work. Has anyone had similar issues? Or have a webcam that definitely works? (I am using mac OS) Thanks!


Hi @MLindsay and welcome to the ARE Community! Let’s see if one of our ARE Coaches can recommend a webcam! @coachdarionziegler @coachlizschneider @cat.heard9

Hi @MLindsay ,

I’m afraid I’m not a Mac user… But I own a couple of Logitech webcams and have always been happy with their performance!

This is the webcam I own and it passed the Prometric Systems test!

It’s a bit pricey, but NCARB will give you $50 to purchase a webcam!

Maybe someone else has some first hand webcam experience they can share?
