Section 1400.140 Examinations − Length
The time allotted to the examination in each subject shall be determined by the Board and shall be printed on the letter of approval.
a) A candidate may take the required examination sections individually and in any order. Credit for any examination sections passed shall be valid for 18 months from the actual date the candidate takes that section.
b) Candidates cannot retake failed examination sections in the same examination window. An examination window is a three-month period in which candidates have an opportunity to take the examination (comprised of two months in which the examination is available to be taken and one month in which the examination will not be offered).
c) Candidates must pass all four sections of the examination within a rolling 18-month period that begins on the date that the first sections passed is taken.
d) In the event all four sections of the examination are not passed within the rolling 18-month period, credit for any sections passed outside the 18-month period will expire and those test sections must be retaken such that all four sections are passed within an 18-month rolling period. Re-authorization to test is required to re-take failed or expired exam sections.
e) A candidate shall be deemed to have passed the examination once the candidate holds at the same time valid credit for passing each of the four examination sections. Credit for passing a section of the computer-based examination is valid from the actual date of the testing event for that section, regardless of the date the candidate actually receives notice of the passing score.
f) The time limitation within which a candidate is required to pass subjects under this Section shall not include any period during which the candidate serves in the armed forces of the United States.
