Computer Based Testing (CBT) of the CBAP® and CCBA® Exams

To register for your exam:
  • View the list of CBT Locations offered through Prometric at www.prometric.com/iiba.
  • After one business day of IIBA processing your exam fee payment, you can register to take your exam with Prometric at www.prometric.com/iiba
When registering your exam date, you will need to enter your Eligibility ID. To find out what your Eligibility ID is, login to the My Profile section of the IIBA website at www.iiba.org.  Enter your username and password as requested. Under "Certification" you will find your eligibilty ID number. 

Exam Languages:  
 
The CCBA® and CBAP® exam is currently available in English and Japanese. The CBAP® exam is also available in German.

All exam candidates are automatically set up to take the exam in English.  If you prefer to take the exam in a language other than English (i.e. Japanese or German), please select the appropriate language in your online application before submitting it to IIBA OR email certification@iiba.org when making your exam fee payment and BEFORE you register online for the exam.  It is your responsibility to ensure you are set up to take the exam in the correct language.  If do not notify IIBA that you want to take the exam in a language other than English, you will be set up to take the exam in English.  If you request a change to the exam language AFTER you have registered online for your exam, you will be subject to the exam cancellation policy documented below and on our website.  Depending on how much notice you provide to IIBA of the language change, you could ultimately forfeit your exam fee altogether and have to repay the exam fee to IIBA in order to reschedule your exam in the correct language.

Special Accommodations:

A modification to the IIBA exam administration procedure may be requested due to disability, handicap or other condition that may affect the ability to sit for the exam.  Special exam accommodations requests should be reasonable and not compromise the validity and reliability of the exam.  If special accommodations are required to the exam, please complete the relevant section of the Certification exam Payment Form.  In addition, you may wish to provide further advance notice to IIBA such that more time is available to meet such accommodations – you can do so by emailing certification@iiba.org.  Please note:  you should not register for the exam through Prometric until you have been approved by IIBA for special accommodations.

At your scheduled exam:

Important
 
Once the proctor logs you onto the computer, you have 2 minutes to confirm your name and exam. If you do not respond within 2 minutes OR you do not agree with the confirmation screen (i.e. you select NO), your exam will end and will be scored without the possibility to return back to it. If this happens, you will have to pay IIBA $100.00 USD (+GST/HST for Canadian Residents) to reschedule the exam.
 
You will then have 2 minutes to agree to the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) screen that is presented after the exam and name confirmation screen. If you do not respond within 2 minutes OR you do not agree with the NDA screen (i.e. you select NO), your exam will end and will be scored without the possibility to return back to it.  If this happens, you will have to pay IIBA $100.00 USD (+GST/HST for Canadian Residents) to reschedule the exam.
 


Identification Requirements:  
When you arrive at the test center, you are required to present ONE form of non-expired, government-issued, photo and signature-bearing identification in order to test.  The primary form of identification must bear your signature and a recent photograph and be current (not expired).    

Please note:  The name on your identification MUST be the exact same name that appears on your exam registration Confirmation email  AND the same name you used to apply online with IIBA   If you change your name on your required identification after having received your exam registration Confirmation email, it is your responsibility to notify IIBA as soon as possible so that the test center can be advised of the change prior to your exam sitting.  Failure to notify IIBA in time will results in the test center not accepting your identification and therefore, you will not be able to take the exam on your scheduled date.  If this happens, you will have to pay IIBA $100.00 USD (+GST/HST for Canadian Residents) to reschedule your exam.

Acceptable forms of primary identification are limited to:
  • Current non expired driver’s license with photo and signature
  • State or government-issued Identification with photo and signature
  • Valid Passport with photo and signature
