Applicants who have been approved for testing are required to pre register for their exam. Each approved applicant will receive a letter and a testcode information sheet in the mail once his/her application is approved. The testcode information sheet needs to be completed and returned to IAODAPCA by the given deadline and with the appropriate fees.
Once scheduled, if you are unable to sit for the exam, you must notify IAODAPCA in writing to transfer your fees to the next available exam. There are fees associated with the transfer, please contact IAODAPCA for fee schedule. Please note, the transfer fee is not the same for each exam offered.
Please remember: To qualify to sit for the any exam you must have your application approved at least 60 days prior to the examination you wish to take. You may test prior to application approval (ICRC Exams excluded); however, you must have appropriate pieces of the application and a letter requesting to test prior to application approval in our office 60 days prior to the examination you wish to take. A detailed list of testing dates and application deadlines is listed below along with directions to apply for testing before your application is approved. Please read the model and application thoroughly for the materials and fees required to test.
