Eligibility Changes
NCCT eligibility routes are undergoing some changes beginning March 30, 2015! To qualify for testing through eligibility Routes 1 (education), 2 (experience), or 3 (military), applicants will need to ensure their qualifying education or experience is less than five years old. This is standard practice in healthcare certification, as job tasks change very rapidly. And since more than 99% of all NCCT examinees qualify for certification testing through one of these three routes, our others (Routes 4-6) will no longer be offered. Currently submitted applications will be processed using the requirements effective when submitted, but applications received on or after March 30th will be processed with the changes.

WANTED: Subject Matter Experts!
NCCT is looking for subject matter experts in all of the disciplines it tests. These experts will fill many important roles for the NCCT certification examinations. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information on the different volunteer options, click here.
