    2023 ACVECC Examination Dates

    While the deadline for the 2023 exam registration is not until May 1, 2023, we wanted to provide some basic information about the examination.

    You will be notified by the Exec Sec office, via email, when the online registration opens for the 2023 ACVECC exam.

    The exam will be held remotely this year, with the location and proctors for the examination determined by each candidate. More detailed instructions will be provided to the candidates after the exam registration deadline. 

    The exam will be held on Aug 30 and 31, 2023. Special accommodations (Aug 28 to 31, 2023).

    This decision is based on the difficulty of scheduling the exam around Labor Day weekend and IVECCS, which would make finding proctors and testing sites difficult.  Scheduling the exam after IVECCS will also overlap with Rosh Hashanah

    More specific information and instructions will follow over the next several months.

    If you have questions in the interim, please let us know.
