Computer Based Testing

Exams are only open to candidates who have been deemed eligible. Registering for the exam is a two-step process:

1)  Candidates must turn in a completed application form with application fee to NBHHC. (For detailed information regarding this step - please see “Application Policies and Procedures” section).

 

2)  Upon receiving notification of status, candidates should take the following next steps:

 

a. If candidate is deemed eligible, candidate will receive an approval confirmation letter via email. The approval confirmation letter will contain an examination registration form and an approval code. Please use this approval code to fill out your exam registration form and send to NBHHC along with the appropriate exam fee.  After submission of exam registration form, candidate will receive an exam registration confirmation letter via email, which will provide instructions on how to register for the computer based testing. Candidate will have the option of choosing a conveniently centered testing location on a date and time within the testing window period (based on testing location availability).

b. If candidate is deemed ineligible, candidate will need to resubmit another application form when they have met the

necessary requirements.

 

The National Board for Home Care and Hospice Certification contracts with Professional Testing to coordinate computer based testing through Pearson VUE, the global leader in technology-enable testing and assessment services to administer and deliver the examinations. When Pearson VUE receives an inquiry from NBHHC with its list of eligible candidates for examinations, Pearson VUE will register and schedule the Candidate to take the examination.
