Important Information: Many of the testing centers used by the Florida Certification Board for certification exams have closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time many examinations have been rescheduled and we are not scheduling new examinations until a determination has been made about availability of testing centers in the near future. Please call the office if you have questions. (March 16, 2020)
Passing the exam is the last requirement for certification. Certification exam questions are written for an individual who has met the minimum education, training, work experience, and supervision requirements established for the credential; therefore, no one will be allowed to register for an exam until their Certification Specialist has approved their application and all supporting documents. Upon approval of an application, the Certification Specialist will send an email to the candidate, which will contain instructions on how to register and pay for the exam.
Please carefully review the Candidate Guide: Examination for specific policies.
How to Register
In order to register for an exam, you MUST have a current exam approval email containing your unique Exam Access Code and have paid all associated exam fees. Exam approval emails are sent to candidates who have applied for certification, paid their fees, and received approval from the FCB to schedule an exam.
Exam Access Codes are approved for a limited time only. Previously registered Exam Access Codes are no longer valid.
You may ONLY register to take the exam that is specified in your exam approval email. If you think that you have been approved for the wrong exam, contact the FCB Testing Manager BEFORE registering. When approved to take your exam, you will choose the time and location from our list of selected vendors.
If you need to reschedule or retake an exam, contact the FCB and speak with your assigned Certification Specialists for help.
Applicants seeking American’s with Disabilities (ADA) accommodations must complete and submit the FCB Special Accommodations Request Form at least 30 calendar days before the requested test date.
Please note: ADA Requests and supporting documentation must be completed by a qualified professional and include the requested accommodation.
How to Prepare
The FCB offers Study Guides for several exams, which are available for purchase on the Products page. We have also developed a Training and Test Self-Assessment and Preparation Guide for each credential. This document provides test taking strategies, the exam blueprint (number of test items for each competency) and a guide for structured note taking. You can locate this guide on the page for your credential.
Taking your Exam
All FCB exams are administered at proctored test sites across Florida, as well as other states served by the FCB. Exams are computer-based and test takers will receive their unofficial score immediately upon ending the exam. Official scores are issued approximately 2 weeks later.
