Each question can be reviewed before submission. Once you have completed the exam, your final score is available immediately. CBCO Certificates are mailed upon completion and arrive in about 3 to 4 weeks. They are valid for one year from the date you complete the exam. A new certificate is sent each year to the credential holder after the recertification process is complete.
Upon completion of the exam, you will be notified immediately if you received a passing or failing score.
- You must score an 85% or higher overall to receive a passing score on the exam.
- If you receive a passing score, you will be emailed a congratulatory notice pertaining to your CBCO credentials and obligations. A numbered certification certificate will be mailed to you within a couple of weeks. See CEU section below.
- If you receive a failing score, you will be eligible for up to 2 free exam re-takes.
- There will be a 30 day waiting period after each failing score before exam re-take access will be granted. (You should use this time to study!)
