NCBAP COVID-19 Update

NCBAP announces extensions for CACP certification & re-certification due to test site access & delays triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, the NCBAP announces that extensions are granted for individuals facing examination scheduling difficulties ONLY related to the pandemic.  Please review the information below and contact the NCBAP Board only if you are unable to schedule an exam date within the extension periods defined below. 

Initial Certification Examinations
All individuals who had an initial examination date scheduled from March 2020 on, are granted an extension until July 31, 2020 to re-schedule your exam.  You will not incur any additional fees from NCBAP to re-schedule.  Note, individual testing sites may have varying policies in place and if a change fee is involved, the individual bears this responsibility.

Re-certification Examinations
