The Examinations are administered via computer at more than 170 AMP Assessment Centers geographically distributed throughout the United States. There are no application deadlines and candidates who meet the eligibility requirements for an examination may submit their applications and fees at any time. The following steps outline the application process:

1. The candidate completes and submits a paper application (included in this handbook for a computerized version or obtained from for a date‑specific paper version of the exam) and appropriate fee when the eligibility requirements are satisfied. CCB reserves the right to verify information supplied by or on behalf of a candidate. Any misrepresentation of information shall be considered grounds for prohibition from testing or revocation of certification.

An application is considered complete only if all information requested is complete, legible, and accurate; if the candidate is eligible for the examination; and if the appropriate fee accompanies the application. Required information includes personal information, indication of eligibility for examination, indication of the applicable fee, and the applicant’s signature. 

2. The application is processed, and a confirmation notice of eligibility is sent to the candidate within approximately 3 business days. If a confirmation notice is not received within two weeks, contact CCB at 888-580-8373. This confirmation of a candidate’s eligibility and acceptance of the application is valid for 90 days. A candidate who fails to schedule an appointment for examination within the 90-day period forfeits the application and all fees paid to take the examination. A complete application and examination fee are required to reapply for examination.

In addition to computer-administered examinations, paper‑and‑pencil administrations will be scheduled throughout the year at various events.
