All NCP Exam Registrants qualify for a Guide. ECCHO does close it’s Guide registration in December each year so the Guide has enough time to support the candidate in their process.
Guides will typically spend between 1 and 4.5 hours during candidate’s exam preparation answering questions about how and what to study, general check subject matter, and the exam experience. Guides are encouraged to discuss blueprint
areas and how to best allocate study time. Guides are forbidden from discussing specific exam questions and/or content or to answer study questions.
Guides do not take the place of an exam preparation training course. Guides serve as resources to improve the NCP journey – not as teachers. A Guide can be asked questions, provide direction, but he/she is not responsible for training on subject matter.
