Appeals and Complaints


I. Appeal of Results

 

The Certification Board allows any candidate to provide feedback on the examination content and procedures about:

  • Technical accuracy of the examination
  • Fairness in the administration of the examination.

A candidate who has concerns regarding administrative procedures at testing or who has observed a breach of security or other improper conduct should submit a report in writing within 15 days after taking the examination.

A candidate who has a question or concern about the reliability, validity, or fairness of the examination may submit the question or concern in writing to the Certification Board no later than 30 days after taking the examination.

Upon submission of the necessary documentation for appeals, the Appeals Process as outlined in the Policy & Procedures Manual will begin.
