The Academy has completed the Part II Diplomate examination this past weekend. We are anticipating all on line testing for 2018. We’ll know more on Part I and II dates early next year. This dramatic change in the examination process will reduce the costs involved for candidates. The exact costs for the Part II have not been set, that will be forthcoming early next year as we assess our costs.


The Academy will be attending the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) this month. There will be information provided about NCCA certification that we are pursuing. ICE is the parent of NCCA.
