CEP Exam Information
CEP Candidates worldwide are anxiously awaiting exam results from the November 2nd, 2013 exam administration. Due to the very lengthy and thorough scoring process that takes place following each exam, it does take six to eight weeks before exam results are available.
We look forward to adding more names to our list of CEP Designees which currently boasts almost 1,400.Are you on the list?
Registration is currently open for both 2014 exam administration dates – June 7, 2014 and November 8, 2014. If you are awaiting results from the November exam, you will have to wait just a bit longer to register for the next exam. If, however, you did not test in November and are considering signing up for an exam, please visit our registration page now for more information.
