Effective 2019, all certification exams will be administered via online testing at recognized testing centers. The Board has been evolving to this standard in recent years. During 2017-2018, 90% of all tests were already being conducted in this manner. This process ensures the highest possibly integrity and also allows immediate availability of exam results.
Prompting evolution away from paper tests were two instances in which the designated preceptor violated their responsibility to keep individual hard copy exams secure. In one instance, the breech appeared significant enough to warrant a re-write of many of the examination bank questions.
Many thanks to all of you who have served as preceptors over the past two decades.
