Upon completion of processing and verifying exam candidacy, NBC-HIS will contact the exam candidate to schedule an exam session. An Exam Confirmation Notice will be emailed to the exam candidate immediately following exam registration. The exam candidate must present the Exam Confirmation Notice to the exam proctor at the exam site on the day of the scheduled exam.

An NBC-HIS examination application will remain valid for two-years from the initial exam date. If an exam candidate does not pass the National Competency Exam within two-years from the initial exam date, he/she must submit a new application for approval and will be required to pay both an application fee and examination fee.
