ALNCCB and Prometric comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and strive to ensure that no individual with a disability is deprived of the opportunity to take the examination solely by reason of that disability. Prometric will provide reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities. Accommodations will be granted for candidates that choose to take their exam at a test center or through remote proctoring, there may be situations where candidates will have to test at a center in order to receive the approved accommodations.
Reasonable accommodations provide candidates with disabilities a fair and equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skill in the essential functions being assessed by the examination. Reasonable accommodations are decided based on the individual’ s specific request, disability, documentation submitted, and appropriateness of the request. Reasonable accommodations do not include steps that fundamentally alter the purpose or nature of the examination.
Requests for accommodation must be submitted in writing to ALNCCB no later than 30 days before the candidate’ s preferred testing date, and candidates must submit their scheduling request at least 30 days prior to their preferred test date. It is recommended that this documentation be submitted at least 45 days prior to the preferred testing date.

To view a list of where upcoming examinations will be offered, please click here for the IQT sites, and click here for the Prometric test sites.
All IQT Testing sites are independently operated from Prometric and therefore they update their calendar on a month to month basis (most often at the beginning of each month). For this reason, we suggest not attempting to schedule your exam prior to one month before your exam in order to see the most up-to-date testing locations offered.
Prometric will provide you with your testing location' s address and driving directions with your test confirmation. Your test confirmation will be sent to you via email immediately after your appointment has been made.
During the May 2023 exam, all scores were delayed following the close of the testing window. Scores will be made available to candidates who tested as soon as possible. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
