NCCAOM 2006 Exam Update – Hot Off the Press!

Announcing June 2006 Exam Dates and Locations

NCCAOM is excited to announce the unveiling of the new computerized examination administration this summer.  Registered candidates can be the first to benefit from this new computer-based administration during our June examination cycle, which will be held in a two-week period starting June 19 to July 1, 2006.  Candidates will also have the luxury of choosing over 200 locations to take their exams (which means less travel time) as compared to from fewer than 30 sites available in the past.  The registration for the June examination administration will begin June 12.  We will be notifying all eligible candidates approximately one month before the exam. Candidates can either call or register online directly with our testing vendor, PearsonVUE (   If you were registered for the February 2006 exams, you must call to schedule your exams beginning June 12, 2006. You can also view our press release with more detailed information about this announcement.


As a result of the many questions that we have received and our desire to assist our candidates throughout the registration process, we have created a fact sheet on our website.  For more continuously updated information on the upcoming exams please visit our website periodically.  Also, please see our FAQs (frequently asked questions) and testing Fact Sheetwhich are updated to bring you the latest information. You can visit our website for a location of testing centers.
