Once I apply to take the examination, how long before I can actually take the examination?

The time will vary for each application and will depend on whether you are a first-time applicant or a re-examination applicant. First-time applicants must have educational eligibility determined, so the process will take several weeks. Re-examination applicants will be sent approval from the board office within a short time period, usually within one week after receipt in the Board office.
