Testing Schedule Changes Announced

If you are gearing up for accreditation, you will want to be aware of a new testing schedule announced by ICAPGen℠:
  • Starting with 4th quarter of 2018 we have changed the testing schedule. We are implementing a Friday night/Saturday daytime test schedule. The first part of Level 2 exams will be given on Friday evening. The candidate will return Saturday to complete their Level 2 exam and take their written portion of the Level 3 exam. Retakes will be scheduled as needed during the Saturday testing day. (Those preferring to take Level 2 & Level 3 during different testing cycles may do so, but they will need to take Level 2 one testing cycle and wait until the following test cycle to take Level 3.)
  • Level 1 submissions are graded at the beginning of each quarter. Projects received between submission deadlines will be held until the next quarter for grading. For example: A Level 1 submission uploaded between 7 January (day after 1st quarter deadline) & 7 April 2018 (day of 2nd quarter deadline) is graded at the beginning of 2nd quarter.
  • Level 2 tests may not be scheduled until after receiving a score of 90% or higher on the Level 1 submission.
  • Level 3 tests may not be scheduled until after receiving a score of 90% or higher on the Level 2 tests.
  • Oral Reviews may not be scheduled until after receiving a score of 90% or higher on the written portion of Level 3 tests.
  • Off-site testing is scheduled on an individual basis.
  • Custom on-site testing available for special circumstances. (Email the testing secretary for permission at testing.secretary@icapgen.org before paying fees.)
  • Additional charges apply for both offsite and custom onsite testing. See Fee Schedule for details.

Below are the remaining deadlines for Level 1 submissions and onsite testing dates for the year 2018.
