Passing all required NCCAOM exams does not automatically result in certification. See the Steps to NCCAOM Certification in the NCCAOM® Certification Handbook for information about the documents required to become certified.
Candidates are not certified until all required documents are accepted and the candidate has received the official NCCAOM congratulatory letter along with a wallet-size identification card by USPS mail. Candidates may not represent or advertise NCCAOM certification until this official notification is received (approximately six (6) weeks after all requirements are met). Candidates may expect to receive an NCCAOM certificate, suitable for framing, approximately six (6) weeks from the date certified.
It is the candidate’s responsibility to submit a request to the NCCAOM for their results to be sent to any regulatory agencies.
