Applying for Certification

Submitting an Application

Applicants are required to attest that all of the information provided in the online application is complete and truthful. If an applicant has falsified or omitted any material information in the application, sanctions may result, including invalidation of exam score or revocation of certification or eligibility for certification.

I.C.E. staff will review all applications and will directly contact applicants to provide any information identified as missing in the application. All applications are subject to audit and verification. Applications cannot be approved until the audit is satisfactorily concluded.

Failure to respond by the deadline to a request for more information or an audit inquiry will result in the applicant’s eligibility being denied; in such cases, the examination fee will be refunded, but the application review fee is non-refundable.

Payment Methods

Payment for the ICE-CCP examination is made online by credit card at the time of application. Visa, Mastercard or American Express are accepted. Questions regarding group payment or other questions regarding the payment processes can be directed to

Preparing for the Examination

No two candidates have exactly the same combination of knowledge and experience in the credentialing field or preferred learning style. Therefore, the degree and type of preparation needed will vary, and should be based on each individual’s honest assessment of their needs.

I.C.E. has a number of resources available for individuals who wish to utilize them. All resources were developed independently from the ICE-CCP examination, but align closely with the Examination Content Outline. The purchase of any resource is not required to take the exam and does not guarantee a passing score.

Questions about the Guide or the Workshop may be directed to I.C.E. Education staff at

Scheduling an Examination 

Approximately three weeks before the testing window opens an email will be sent out from Meazure Learning to candidates who have submitted the complete application and the certification fee with instructions on how to schedule their examination. Candidates have 10 days from the date of the email notification to schedule the examination. This is referred to as the “scheduling window”. Once the examination has been scheduled, a confirmation email listing the date and time of the examination will be sent via email. The email will also contain instructions on how to prepare for a live remote proctoring (LRP) session. Candidates are encouraged to check their “junk” or “spam” email folders to ensure they receive all email notifications.

Be sure that your computer and the location where you intend to take the examination meet the requirements specified in your confirmation email BEFORE examination day. If they do not meet the requirements, you will not be able to complete the test, and you will not receive a refund.

Cancellation/Rescheduling Policies

In the event a candidate cancels the scheduled exam or fails to report at the scheduled time, no fees will be refunded. Please refer to the applicable sections of the Candidate Handbook for policies regarding cancelling or rescheduling the ICE-CCP examination.
