NCCCO grants extensions in response to Covid-19

13 July 2020

NCCCO realizes that Covid-19 has continued to affect the ability of candidates and certificants to test in a timely fashion due to various local government restrictions and continues to make updates to policies accordingly.

Recent updates have been made so that candidates in the process of obtaining certification or recertifying and have been unable to test now have until July 31, 2020, to complete certification requirements if their previous deadline was between March and June of this year. These extensions apply to paper/pencil tests, computer-based tests and practical exams and are automatic, so no request needs to be made by the candidate.

In addition, NCCCO is extending the certification expiration date for certifications expiring in March 2020 through June 2020 until July 31, 2020. This extension is reflected in Verify CCO Online (VCO) as well as the new myNCCCO mobile app.
