How does passing/failing work for the current Certification Examination?

Category: Exams

As of October 2022, the Certification Exam is scored as a single exam composed of two sections (Cases & Didactic). You must pass both sections in one sitting in order to pass the exam. If you fail one part of the exam you must take the entire exam over again the next time it is offered in the Fall. Failing one part of the exam adds a one-time 5 year extension onto your original eight year eligibility period, for a maximum eligibility period of 13 years.
