CCB to Begin Offering Computer-Based Testing

June 15, 2010

Wallingford, CT - The CCB will begin offering computer-based testing (CBT) as an option for all CCB exams in September, 2010. The new CBT options to be offered will include all IC&RC exams (CAC, CCS, CPP and CCDP/CCDP-D) as well as the CCB MATS - Medication Assisted Treatment Specialist exam. The eligibility requirements for testing will remain the same. However, candidates will now have the option of taking IC&RC exams either by paper & pencil administration at the CCB offices or they will be able to elect to schedule a CBT session at one of the approved testing locations in Connecticut and beyond. The CCB MATS exam will be available only as a CBT option and offered on a continual basis for all eligible candidates.

Computer-based testing has several advantages:

  • ?  Immediate preliminary feedback on test results (Pass or Fail)

  • ?  Increased flexibility and scheduling of exams

  • ?  Multiple testing locations

  • ?  Private and secure exam setting

    Only authorized candidates are eligible to test in Connecticut and typically include individuals that are:

  1. In the process of getting certified. Once an individual meets all of the requirements of a credential, they are notified in writing and are invited to test.

  2. Out of state candidates or those authorized to test by Department of Public Health, the IC&RC or other organizations.

  3. Actively registered CITs (CIT - Counselor in Training)

CCB Testing Dates in 2010 and 2011 for IC&RC exams are tentatively scheduled for the following dates:
