Special Accommodations for Testing

The CBCCT certification program in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990), provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations for disabled individuals who supply appropriate documentation.

Reasonable accommodations provide disabled candidates with a fair and equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skill in the functions being measured by the exam. Reasonable accommodations do not include actions that alter the purpose or nature of the exam. Reasonable accommodations are generally provided for candidates who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits that person in one or more major life activities (e.g., walking, talking, hearing and performing manual tasks); have a record of such physical or mental impairment; or is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment.

Reasonable accommodations are decided upon based on the individual's specific request, disability, documentation submitted and the appropriateness of the request. The most frequent requests involve providing the candidate with extended time and/or a separate room. No additional cost is placed on the candidate.

Candidates requesting special accommodations must submit CBCCT/APCA Request for Special Accommodations Form with their application. Medical documentation from an appropriate licensed professional or certified specialist who diagnosed the disability of specific needs must accompany the request. The documentation must be submitted on the professional's letterhead, provide a diagnosis of the disability and the test(s) used to determine the disability.
