CCB Eliminates Application Submission Deadlines & Implements New Application Status Reporting System

Wallingford, CT The CCB is pleased to announce the elimination of all CCB application submission deadlines and the implementation of a new web-based application status reporting system. Historically, all CCB applications were processed according to four deadlines each year (March, June, September & December). Until recently, these deadlines were required due to the IC&RC testing cycles which also occurred four times per year during the same months. Since the CCB is now offering IC&RC testing year round using on demand computer based testing, the deadlines are no longer necessary. This will significantly reduce the processing time of applications and allow for not only year round submission of applications but also ongoing processing of completed applications.
