Appeals & Challenges

ICC offers a feedback and appeal service that allows you to comment on your testing experience or challenge the results of your exam. Code Council Assessment Center staff will review comments or challenges on specific exams, exam items, or any issues encountered during your examination.

Our experience shows that the best comments are those that come as soon after the testing process as possible. Include sufficient amount of detail to aid staff in the review oft your challenged question(s) or issues related to the exam experience.
