This will be a Live Virtual Prep Course via the Zoom application. You will be mailed your PCE prep course materials 3-4 weeks prior to the course to the address you list when you check out. Seven (7) days prior to the course start date, you will receive the Zoom Meeting Invite & additional course information to the email address you provide during check out (if you do not see the email in your inbox by 6 days prior to the course, please check your junk mail folder & then email PCE at email@example.com). The course is a Live interactive course with a PCE instructor that is conducted through the Zoom application from your computer or smart device. This change has been made in an effort to keep you safe & to adhere to any gathering restrictions throughout the country. The Live course will cover the same information as the on-site course, it will just be via computer. The course is a full two days and you must be logged in for both days in their entirety in order to receive CE credit for the course.
After successfully completing the prep course, you will be emailed your CE certificate & Exam Registration Form. If you meet the examination eligibility requirements (see Examination section), you will be eligible to register for the certification examination at the discounted off-site exam rate of $150.00 for completing the prep course. You will not be eligible for this rate until after completion of the prep course. The off-site exam is an exam taken in your own area with your own selected proctor. The 2022 Off-Site Exam Schedule will be available shortly.
