All active NCPs qualify to be a Guide. Guides earn ‘free’ NCP Continuing Education Credits for their time. Guides will typically spend between 1 and 4.5 hours during the 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 allocate study time. Guides are forbidden from discussing specific exam questions and/or content or to answer study questions.
- 1 NCP CE Credit/50 minutes of guidance (regardless of how candidate performs on the exam). Maximum of 5 NCP CE Credits (4 hrs 20 min) per exam cycle
- CE Credits should be filed across two years if the guidance occurs in the year prior to and the year of the candidate’s exam; not to exceed 5 credits between them
- Providing guidance to additional people in a group setting is acceptable, however, Credit(s) will only be provided for working with one candidate per exam cycle
- Enrollment: June 1 – December 1 for the next year’s exam. Earlier enrollment increases likelihood of being paired with a candidate
The Guide signs an oath below, emails it to firstname.lastname@example.org and becomes paired based on candidate availability. The Guide maintains tracking of the time together and submits with all other NPC CE Credit submissions at year end. (1 CE for each 50 minutes up to 5 CE Credits per exam cycle).
Being paired is based on registrant sign up. Once paired, reassignment is possible. Contact 214-273-3218 or email@example.com for more info.
