Examination Timetable
Important Update
The National Certification Examination will be offered in multiple locations. Each location will have a limited number of slots and although we will accept all applications, location is determined on a first-come first-serve basis based on the date applications are approved. Once one location is full, applicants will be diverted to one of the other locations.
This timetable replaces all other revisions to the examination timetable.
