Important News on Testing for NCSAPPB
The Board and staff is very excited to announce that following October 3rd, 2011 (the deadline for the December 2011 test), all applicants who submit monies and hours to test will be given 365 days to register to test. Please note:
Applicants will still be subject to file reviews by staff.
Applicants will still receive a letter instructing them to watch their email In-box.
Perhaps most importantly, applicants will no longer be subject to the 60-day deadline to submit items for quarterly testing.
