NIGP-CPP EXAM SPECIFICS
The comprehensive NIGP-CPP is a two-part, modular exam - Module A & B. (the Module B Exam is Module B only). The modular format gives candidates flexibility to take both exam modules in a single sitting or to take each module one at a time. Test scores are based on each module. A candidate who passes Module A but is not successful in Module B will only need to retake and pay exam fees for the Module B exam.
Exam day specifics
Each module exam consists of 80 questions that need to be completed within two hours at a designated testing center. Both exam modules are located at testing centers throughout North America and are administered by a third-party. Exam modules are offered four times each year during the months of February, May, August, and November.
Candidates who do not achieve a passing score may apply to retest during a later testing period by remitting the testing fee. Each candidate has three opportunities to pass each module during the two-year application period.
