NCCAP National Exam

The NCCAP National Exam, administered by an independent 3rd-party testing company as required by credentialing best practice, is the final step to achieving NCCAP Certification. An individual is required to submit certificates of completion for both MEPAP Part 1 and Part 2 in order to qualify to take the National Exam.

Starting September 15, 2019, NCCAP uses the 3rd-party testing company Prometric. Prometric requires that NCCAP collect the exam fee from each exam taker.

Accordingly, the Initial Certification Application and Level Change Application, both online and PDF versions, include the $90 exam fee.

After payment, NCCAP informs Prometric and a code and instructions is emailed by Prometric to the exam taker.

Those applying for Level Change who are exempt under previous standards or have already taken the National Exam are not required to pay the exam fee. 

If a student wants to take the National Exam and is not ready for a Level Change, they should contact the NCCAP Office to request an exam application that will enable them to pay the $90 exam fee. After payment, a code and instructions will be emailed by Prometric to the student. 

Importantly, the exam must be taken within 30 days of receiving the code from Prometric.

The NAAP Study Guide is available for purchase from NAAP and is recommended for the exam.

The cost of the exam is $90. 

The exam is 50 multiple choice questions.

The time allowed to take the exam is 2 hours.

You must receive a 70% score or better to pass the exam.

You may take the exam as often as you like. However, you must pay the $90 exam fee each time.
