Computer Based Testing
Fall 2017

The Perfusion Basic Science Examination and the Clinical Applications in Perfusion Examination will be administered at Prometric testing centers throughout the United States, U.S. Territories and Canada from Wednesday, October 18 - Saturday, October 21, 2017. Exams may be taken during that time period only. The duration of each exam is four hours and both examinations may be taken on the same day, depending on test site availability.

Prior to registering for the examination(s) with Prometric, the examinee must complete the ABCP application process. To complete the application process, the following items must be on file in the ABCP National Office:

  • a completed application form with appropriate fee
  • an official transcript
  • the clinical competency form signed by the student and the program director
  • the clinical education record that applies to the examination(s)

Once the application process has been completed, the ABCP National Office will provide you with an examination ID number; you can then visit the Prometric test site to select a test location, date and time for the examination(s). In order to register online, you must have a valid e-mail address. Examinees can also register using the Prometric automated voice response system at 800-894-9984. In order to insure the best selection of testing sites and times, you should register as soon as possible after being notified by ABCP that you have been cleared for the examination(s). It is crucial that the application process be completed as early as possible in order for you to reserve your preferred time and location for the examination(s).

At the testing center you will be required to present one valid, non-expired government-issued photo ID with a signature (e.g., driver's license or passport). If you are testing outside of your country of citizenship, you must present a valid passport. If you are testing within your country of citizenship, you must present either a valid passport, driver's license, national ID or military ID. The name on the ABCP application must match the name on your ID, or you may be denied admission. For example, if your driver's license is issued to Robert L. Doe and you have registered with ABCP using your nickname Larry Doe, you may be denied admission. Contact the ABCP National Office immediately if there is a discrepancy between the name on your ABCP application and your photo ID.

If you need to reschedule a testing appointment, you must do so at least 5 calendar days prior to your appointment using the Reschedule/Cancel option on the Prometric web site or Prometric's automated voice response system at 800-894-9984; both are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no charge for changing an appointment within the same testing window if the change is made at least 5 calendar days prior to your appointment.
