  Now is the time to take the BCPA advocacy certification exam...
(if you haven't already done so)
  As of today, there are no education or experience requirements to take the BCPA (Board Certified Patient Advocate) exam. Before the first exam was given in early 2018, the PACB announced that policy would not change for at least four testing cycles

This Fall's exam will be the fourth testing cycle, the last one guaranteed not to have an education or experience requirement attached to it.

Register for the Fall 2019 exam by August 30th. Now is the time to get registered!
