Examination and Test Administration Processes
In June 2008, the Certification and Restoration Program contracted with the Association of Boards of Certification to assist us with examination development and examination administration. The Association of Boards of Certification is a nationally recognized organization devoted entirely to operator certification issues. Currently, the services of the Association of Boards of Certification are utilized by approximately 33 states within the United States.
The Association of Boards of Certification now administers our licensure examinations nationwide on a computer based format. This change in the way our examinations are administered allows us to offer you greater flexibility and convenience when scheduling your examination and allows you to receive your examination results before leaving the testing facility. Furthermore, you may now submit your future examination applications at any time. There will no longer be an application deadline associated with the computer based examination process.
Once your application has been reviewed and approved by the Department, you will be mailed an examination approval letter. You will then be able to schedule your exam on a date and time that is convenient for you. Examinations are now able to be administered Monday through Friday, and on at least one Saturday a month (excluding holidays). You may schedule your examination via the web or over the phone.
In addition to the change from paper and pencil to a computer-based format, some of our exam times have changed too. The examination time for our Drinking Water and Wastewater Class A, B and C examinations has changed from a four (4) hour examination to a three (3) hour examination.
As always, it is our goal to continually improve our business practices to better meet the needs of those we serve. If you have any questions or would like any additional information regarding these changes, please read our CBT EXAMINATION HANDBOOK or feel free to contact us 850-245-7500.
