Once you have passed the Module Tests with at least 80% and you have posted the 5 required messages to the message board, you will be invited to take the Certification Exam. It is a Closed Book exam and it must be taken in one sitting with a maximum of 2 hours to complete. The exam pass mark is 70%.
Please do not start the exam unless you are confident that you have a full 2 hours of uninterrupted Internet connection available to complete the exam. Remember, that the final exam cannot be put on hold. It must be completed in one sitting.
From the moment you click to begin the exam, you will have to answer approximately 100 multiple choice questions, which cover all phases of your curriculum. Some questions may appear to have more than one right answer, but there is only one correct answer per question.
If required, you can mark a question to review it later and move on to the next question. As you progress with the exam, the on-screen menu will show you the total amount of questions, how many have been answered, how many are unanswered, or have been marked for review.
Once complete your results will be immediately available to you on screen. Providing the examination is a final requirement for your program your total points for the certification level will be calculated by the system and your application passed on to the IACCM Certification Team. Please allow at least two weeks to be contacted.
The exam could be retaken once, free of charge, during your 12-month license period. Any additional retakes will incur a fee of $100.
