How the Program Works

  • Make a bulk purchase using a credit card or electronic check on-line.  Payment cannot be mailed and any received will be returned to the user. 
  • Get email confirmation of your order with voucher codes for each type of exam purchased
  • Bulk purchases can be done for core, subspecialty, or a mix of both types of exams.  Voucher codes will be specific to the core or subspecialty exams as ordered. 
  • Distribute the voucher codes to participants 
  • Participants will register for an exam by selecting Register with a bulk voucher under Special Testing Opportunities under the Certification Exams tab. 
  • Participants enter their voucher code.  If a valid code is entered users will be prompted to select the area of certification for which they want to apply. 
  • The participant will proceed with the application and bulk payment will be applied to their registration. 
  • An email notification will be sent to the purchaser for every participant that registers with a purchased voucher code.
  • Aggregate data of exam results will be provided in the account.
  • There are no refunds or withdrawals for any reason for voucher codes. Once a voucher code is used there are no cancellations and voucher replacements. Participants who pay for a certification without using the voucher code and bulk voucher portal will have to meet all policies related to certification registration and withdrawals.
