In addition to the ETCP deadline extension, the ETCP Council would like to announce a reduction in the examination re-take fees. This decision is an effort is to reduce test anxiety by giving candidates a second chance to take the examination, if needed, at a much lower rate. Previously, the retake fee was $400 for constituents of ETCP Council member organizations, and $500 for non-constituents. The re-take rates are now $150 and $200, respectively.
If you would like more information, including candidate handbooks or application forms, please contact Katie Geraghty, ETCP Certification Director, at 212-244-1505 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is vital to ETCP that both the development process and the examinations themselves are professionally sound.
