Int'l Board Meeting - March 2014

Coming in 2015...

Strategic Plan 2013-2018:  Goal 3 - Professional Development & Certification

We are excited to announce that we currently plan to move to computer-based testing in 2015. We can’t share a lot of specifics yet; however, we can say that computer-based testing will be done through a company with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system, with testing locations throughout North America.

Also, with the change to computer-based testing, we will be changing our application deadline dates and the actual exam dates. Our plan right now is to offer the exams in March and September, replacing our current schedule of May and November.

Note, there will be no exam in November 2014.  For complete information, visit the Association’s web site at:
