The International Code Council is committed to the health, safety and welfare of our members. As the country continues to respond to COVID-19, we remain dedicated to upholding that commitment and helping building safety professionals like you navigate through the developing crisis.
We understand this is an unprecedented situation, so we’re working to identify flexible solutions to help you with your training, testing, and certification needs.
If you’re planning to take a Code Council exam soon…
If you’ve purchased a computer-based exam, starting May 1, 2020, many testing locations will reopen to administer examinations in most jurisdictions. Alaska and Pennsylvania locations will remain closed until further notice.
Availability for testing will be limited as test sites will be operating at 50% capacity as part of social distancing. If you’ve already scheduled your exam, you’ll receive communication about rescheduling from our Pearson VUE partner if needed. Don’t worry though, your exam purchase is good for one year.
We’ve extended renewal dates
We understand that renewing your certification may not be possible at this time. If your certification was scheduled to expire between March 1, 2020 and August 31, 2020, your renewal date has been extended to September 1, 2020.
We took care of everything - you should now see your new renewal date reflected in your account.
