10.3 Americans with Disabilities Act Accommodations


The ABO and its Board Certification exam meet all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Candidates can refer to the Candidate Guide for more information.


  1. The ABO partners with Prometric to ensure the Board Certification exam is compliant with ADA requirements.
  2. During registration, the candidate also must contact the ABO for a release of information form relative to an accommodations request. Documentation submitted in support of a request may be referred by the ABO to experts in the appropriate area of disability for a fair and impartial professional review. Recent documentation of disability is required.
  3. Prometric has its own policies and procedures regarding ADA accommodations that ensure the candidate can take the exam to the best of his or her ability. The ABO will contact Prometric to set up reasonable accommodations for the candidate.
