COVID 19 Virus Update...

Due to the impact of COVID 19,  Pearson Vue Professional Testing Centers are closing temporarily.  CCBMA's first priority is the safety of our applicants during the testing experience.  At this time, we are granting a 4 month testing extension to those directly affected ( must test by dates March and April 31st).  Pearson Vue will notify applicants on or around April 16 on an individual basis to reschedule.  Please feel free to contact the office with questions.

Your patience in this matter is greatly appreciated.


 A copy of your US Government issued ID (Driver's license, ID card or passport) is required with all certification applications submitted.
