General Examination Policies – Common Questions
The following are common questions about general policies regarding the CLNC Certification Examination.
- Are actual exam questions available for review?
Vickie Milazzo Institute does not make exam questions available for review. Because exam questions can be used for more than one examination administration, distributing such materials would compromise the security of the items and the fairness of the exam.
- When do I receive my test score?
For the online exam, results are available on the computer screen at the completion of the exam. For the examination administered at the CLNC 5-Day Certification Seminar, you will be notified within two weeks. Test scores are released only to the candidate.
- Who may learn about my CLNC Certification status?
Vickie Milazzo Institute may release your certification status to a third party, if you give permission in writing.
- What if I need to retake the exam?
If you do not receive a passing score on the exam, you may retake the exam. There is no waiting period for retesting, but Vickie Milazzo Institute recommends that you allow enough time to study and prepare again. Different forms of the examination will be given. Unsuccessful candidates who wish to retest must reapply to Vickie Milazzo Institute, submit all applicable fees and documentation and reestablish eligibility. Unsuccessful candidates may submit a copy of their “fail notice” in lieu of resubmitting the documentation forms; however, a new application form (found online at the link provided in the product confirmation email) must be submitted or call 800.880.0944.
- How often can I retake the examination?
You may retake the examination as often as needed to successfully complete it.
- Can I appeal these policies?
Any request to waive any policy of Vickie Milazzo Institute regarding eligibility or administrative issues must be received in writing within 60 days of the incident being appealed. The correspondence should contain a detailed account of why the policy should be waived. All decisions will be provided in writing. FAILURE OF THE EXAMINATION IS NOT APPEALABLE.
- Can I be dismissed from the examination?
You will be dismissed from the test administration or have certification withheld for any of the following reasons:
- Using unauthorized aids during the exam.
- Not following testing directions and procedures.
- Creating a disturbance.
- Giving or receiving help on the examination.
- Attempting to remove notes from the examination room.
- Impersonating another candidate.
If you are dismissed for any of the above reasons, you forfeit any testing fees.
