Test Administration Procedures for OPI Test Proctor
The OPI will be canceled if the call to DLIELC is more than 20 minutes late or if a phone disconnection of the interview lasts for more than 20 minutes.
The OPI requires 45 to 60 minutes per candidate for the proctor, although the interview typically lasts from 30-45 minutes.
The OPI score is valid for six months.
Candidates may be re-interviewed after 90 calendar days.
Upon arrival at DLIELC, IMSs with an OPI requirement will be given an OPI if they have not already taken an in-country telephonic OPI. Those who reached their OPI requirement on the in-country OPI may be given an OPI for statistical purposes during their DLIELC training.
