Preparing for BOC Certification
Each of our certification programs varies in terms of scope of practice, as do the eligibility requirements and exam processes. Education, work experience requirements, and examinations reflect job practice analyses for your profession. Some of our exams are multiple choice, while others are more extensive, testing your technical and practical knowledge or hands-on skills through computer-based simulation and video practice.

Be sure to thoroughly prepare and review all the documentation that will be submitted with your application, including your proof of education.

Once your application is approved, you will receive notification of your eligibility to sign up for your exam(s). The letter you receive will provide details on how to sign up. BOC offers year-round testing for all computer-based exams, which means you don't have to wait for a brief testing window. Please take into consideration the time you will need to be away from work to travel to the test location and take the exam, as well as the time you may need to study for the exam.
BOC examinations are designed to ensure that you are qualified to fulfill your program’s scope of practice. Each certification program's process varies. You will need to complete between one and three exams, depending on your program. Consult the exam schedule for information on each examination. For Multiple Choice and Clinical Simulation Examinations, you will receive your results instantly at the testing facility.
In the event you need to retake an exam, you will need to submit the retake application. You then can retake your exam 90 days following your original exam date.
Once certified, you will need to stay up to date in your certification program by earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Meeting your continuing education requirements for the current cycle and paying your renewal fees annually will enable you to maintain your status as a BOC-certified professional.
