I’ve filled out the CCP application – Now what?

You have reviewed the Candidate Handbook, you have watched the CCP Application Overview video and you have completed and submitted your CCP Application. What happens next?

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an email acknowledging our receipt of your application. Applications are processed in the order received. If there is no missing information, your application will be processed within 72 business hours of receipt. Please be sure to fill in all areas of the application, including signatures and payment information, as leaving blanks will add time to the process.

After we process your application we will notify you via email that your CCP candidacy is approved and you are pre-registered to take the exam. Almost simultaneously, you will receive an email notification from our testing contractor with information on how to register to sit for the exam.

You may take the exam on the date, time and location of your choosing. You have 6 months and three attempts to pass the exam. The fee for the first exam is covered in your application fee, and additional exams, if needed, are $150 each.

The exam is offered at over 250 test sites in the U.S and Puerto Rico, U.S. Territories, Canada and various sites outside of North America. Test sites operate in all 50 states and most are open Monday-Saturday from 9:00 am – 9:00 pm, and Sundays from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm, excluding holidays.

The exam sites are operated by BCCB’s third party testing contractor, Schroeder Measurement Technologies (SMT) and its subsidiary Iso-Quality Testing. Information concerning the cities and states where testing centers are located may be found at www.isoqualitytesting.com and then clicking on “Locate a Testing Center.

When you have passed the exam your test results will be verified and sent to BCCB staff who will then prepare your CCP Certificate and place you on the CCP Registry. You will receive a congratulatory notice and your certificate via email. If you selected to receive a printed copy certificate one will be mailed to you.

For questions, please call BCCB at 844-881-8601 or email us at certification@bcxa.org.
