The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) now says it has solved some problems with its systems that made registration on its CP2 platform problematic.
The examiner is now calling on its contracted professionals (CP) to go ahead and complete their registration.
Contracted professionals include teachers, drivers and security personnel who are used for administration of exams and assessments.
Some teachers have faced numerous problems when registering their details on the CP2 portal. Some of the teachers are first time users who have never manned the exams before.
This year Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has vetted and will deploy more than 250,000 teachers as centre managers, supervisors, invigilators and examiners.
Around 1,268,830 Grade 6 learners will sit for KPSEA exams and 1,230,000 candidates for KCPE exams while Form 4 are about 880,000.
After teachers were vetted and selected for 2022 invigilation and supervision they are supposed to register on the Knec CP2 system.
By registering on the system teachers will help Knec on logistics which include payment for the teachers who take part in the exam administration.
Last week Knec had issued some simple guidelines to help teachers with Knec CP2 registration problems.
Below are the simple guidelines for solving CP2 registration problems for contracted professionals.
