Navigating the ICC website can be a daunting process if you have never registered for an ICC Certification Test. We have tried to give you a simple outline of step by step procedures. If you need study materials we have links at the bottom of this page.

Before you register: You may want to take a look at EXAM OUTLINES on the ICC website. This will give you a listing of what areas you will be tested on and what percentage of questions will be asked on each area. They also offer a few example questions.

Make sure you have all the needed information before you call:

  • Your full name, address, social security number, home and work telephone number.

  • The examination date and location you desire

  • The name and Exam ID # of the Exam

  • Your score report (if you are retaking the exam)

  • Your credit card or payment information

Exam Date and Location: You will want to find a Location which will provide you with a calendar for the location you select. The calendar will show you the dates and times for testing. Select more than one date and time in case your first choice is full.

Exam name and ID#:  You must go to to the ICC website and look at the EXAM FEES link and find the Certification Test you wish to register for. Once you find a Test you will want to note the name of the Exam and also the Exam ID# in the far left column.
