How to Apply

How do I apply for the NABCEP Certification Exams?

1. Certification applicants should read the New 2018 NABCEP Certification Handbook before starting an application.

2. All applicants for NABCEP certification must complete an application with all required documentation, pay an application fee, and submit the application for review. NABCEP accepts applications on an ongoing basis, but in order to qualify to sit for any particular exam date, applications must be completed, paid for, and submitted prior to the Application Deadline for that exam. Please see the links at the bottom of the page to start or continue an existing application. Applications may be saved and returned to at any time during the process of completing.

3. To qualify to sit for a NABCEP Certification Exam, every Applicant, regardless of background, education or experience, must be able to satisfy all requirements for the corresponding certification.

4. Applications are reviewed by NABCEP in the order they are received. Applications submitted just prior to the application deadline may take longer to receive a response due to the large number of applications which are typically submitted at this time. Applications submitted between an application deadline and an examination date may not be reviewed until after the results of the examination have been processed. Applicants are encouraged to submit their application as far in advance of the application deadline as possible.

5. Upon initial review of the application, the applicant will be contacted by NABCEP via email informing them the eligibility requirements have been met and they have been accepted as a candidate, OR the application is incomplete and additional documentation must be submitted. Applicants who submit incomplete applications will be provided with three opportunities to complete the application and resubmit it for further review. If an application is deemed to be incomplete after the third review by NABCEP, it will be rejected and the individual will need to reapply and pay another application fee to be reconsidered. Please note: If an application is not complete by the application deadline for a particular exam, the applicant may not be accepted for that exam and the second review of the application may be postponed until after the examination date.

6. Applicants who are accepted as candidates will be sent instructions via email on how to choose an exam location and pay for the next certification exam. Exam scheduling and payment must be received by the Scheduling Deadline Date for a particular examination.
