If candidates do not pass the Board Certification exam, the exam may be retaken by completing the necessary requirements, also outlined in the Candidate Guide.
- Active Candidate status is valid for up to three years from the application submission date. Once Post-Graduate Requirements are complete, the candidate may take the Board Certification exam as many times as is necessary within this time frame.
- Active candidate status may be renewed for up to three years total by submitting proof of completion of 50 points toward the Post-Graduate requirements for each year of eligibility.
- Full registration fees are charged for each exam. Exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the board.
