Final registration deadline date
How do I schedule an appointment to take the exam?
Approximately 6 weeks after the exam registration closes, IBHRE will contact exam candidates via email with instructions on how to schedule an appointment online. Visit the Exam Scheduling section to learn specifics on scheduling an appointment.
Is there a particular start time when I should schedule my exam appointment?
No. Upon scheduling your appointment with Prometric, you may be presented with the option of selecting your start time in which case you are free to choose whichever start time is most convenient for you. In some cases, your choice of start times may be limited and it may be necessary to accept whichever time is available.
When is the last day that I may schedule my exam appointment?
The final cut-off date to schedule an exam appointment is two business days prior to the exam date, and even then there may be no availability at your preferred testing site. Candidates who attempt to schedule within two days of the exam will not be permitted to schedule an appointment.
IBHRE strongly recommends that you schedule your exam appointment at least thirty (30) days prior to the exam. After 30 days prior to the exam, IBHRE cannot guarantee that an exam appointment will be available at your preferred testing location(s). You may seek assistance from IBHRE when scheduling an appointment until three weeks prior to the exam. If you do not schedule your appointment within three weeks of the exam, IBHRE cannot guarantee assistance with securing a location and cancellation penalties will be enforced.
