Practical Examinations

Updated: 12/29/2021


We are excited to work with our current exam testing vendor, Prometric! Below is the information on how to schedule written and practical exams, once a candidate has been approved by ABOCB to test.

Exam Candidates should not create an account with Prometric BEFORE receiving the contact email from Prometric.  Creating an account before receiving the confirmation email may delay the examination confirmation date and direct the candidate to the practice test which has a $39.00 fee.  If you have any questions, please call Ms. Yina Ford at (334) 242-1916.

Please note that candidates MUST bring their Candidate Admission Letter (provided to the candidate by Prometric after the exam is scheduled) and two forms of identification (one must be government issued with photo) to the exam. Failure to bring these items will result in entrance denial and you will be marked as a “NO SHOW” for the exam.

Prometric’s reschedule policy is shown on the Candidate Admission Letter, but a summary of it is that candidates who are unable to attend their exam must reschedule the exam through Prometric no less than 5-calendar days prior to the exam date. Failure to reschedule an exam in a timely manner will result in a “NO SHOW” being recorded. Exceptions to the 5-calendar day policy will be made on a limited basis (i.e. jury duty, death in the immediate family, military deployment, etc.).

Exam fees are non-refundable and if a “NO SHOW” is recorded, candidates will have to submit another application and exam fee to ABOCB before they can reschedule through Prometric.

Candidates MUST have an email address on file to schedule an exam!
