- Candidates who pass the exam will receive their credentials within 4-6 weeks of testing. The IBSC office will mail credentials to the postal address provided at the time of registration. AN INCOMPLETE OR INACCURATE POSTAL ADDRESS MAY DELAY THE DELIVERY OF YOUR SCORE REPORT. If you are using your work address, be sure to include any additional information that may assist in delivery, such as your department name or mail code. PLEASE PROVIDE ANY UPDATED ADDRESS INFORMATION WITH YOUR REQUEST FOR AN EXAMINATION APPOINTMENT.
- Examination results are only released by postal mail, and will not be released by e-mail, fax, phone, or any other method.
For programs wishing to purchase multiple CBT vouchers.
To register and pay for multiple exams (e.g. 15 candidates completing a critical care program), you must purchase the exams in the IBSC Store. After payment is received for the exams, you will receive a candidate spreadsheet that needs to be completed and returned to Jeanette Myers at email@example.com.. Each candidate on the spreadsheet will then receive an email with instructions for setting up an online account and applying for their exam using a unique voucher number.
There is a $100 fee for switching certification choice or exam delivery method (i.e. switching from CCP-C to FP-C; or switching from computer-based to paper/pencil).
There is a $100 fee for rescheduling the exam date if within 30 days of the confirmed testing date. Prior to 30 days, there is no fee.
