Dates for the IDEX® California exam
APPLICATIONS FOR THE IDEX EXAM ARE ACCEPTED AT ANY TIME, DON’T WAIT!
Note: If your application packet
(including payment and corresponding documents) is submitted past the deadline, you will automatically be deferred to the next exam testing window, without exception.
Candidates who wish to take the IDEX California® Exam in May (1 – 31st)
The registration deadline is always March 1st.
Candidates who wish to take the IDEX California® Exam in October (1 – 31st)
The registration deadline is always August 1st.
Register for IDEX and apply for Certification under Path1, 2, or 3.
What to expect after you register and complete all paperwork (per above deadlines):
1) CCIDC will
notify candidates, via email as follows: Upon receipt of Application packet, again if application packet is incomplete and requires further action from candidate, and once application is
reviewed and approved. The review process can take several weeks, your patience is appreciated.
2) Once all applications are reviewed and approved, CCIDC will deliver all registered
candidate information to the testing vendor, Castle Worldwide, for scheduling.
3) Castle Worldwide will contact each candidate directly via e-mail with a Notice to Schedule (NTS).
Candidates will receive a username and password and will be directed to make their scheduling request at least seven (7) days prior to the date they wish to take the exam.
4) Once a
location, date and time have been determined the candidate will receive a Scheduling Confirmation Notice which will be their admission ticket to the test.
5) Each Scheduling
Confirmation Notice will contain their test date and time, location, and password. It will also contain directions (map) to the location and access to an online demo of the online test
delivery system so the candidate gets an idea of how the system works. The content of the sample exam does not include content from the IDEX California® certification examination.
6) Should a candidate need to reschedule to another testing window, CCIDC allows one emergency transfer without charge (if candidates have scheduled with Castle Worldwide, their fees
will still apply; see NTS email for full details). Any subsequent transfers will require a $375 transfer fee.
