  • No Show Fee - If you fail to appear to for your scheduled testing event, (virtual or in person) and want to reschedule, you will have to pay for another exam attempt (CCP $275, CCA $350).  The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) has to pay for the exam seat when you don’t show up for a scheduled exam.
  • If you have to reschedule due to a no show, please contact the CAICO at CMMC_Exam_Reporting@cmmcab.org as we’ll have to reset your account and issue a new invoice.

If you do not pass the exam on the first attempt

  • you are allowed one (1) re-test attempt for the CCP/CCA exam:
  1. As a Provisional Assessor (PA) or CCP who fails the first CCP exam attempt: you can retake the exam 30-days after the first failed test completion date. For example, if you tested on Oct 19th, 2022 (in person or virtually) then you can retest on Nov 19th, 2022.  
  2. For CCP this means, If a PA fails a second time, the candidate will lose their PA status and will need to attend Licensed Training Providers’ (LTP) training to restart the assessor training and testing process. This also means the PA status for CCA is no longer valid and will require that CCA training from a LTP will be required for taking the CCA test.
  3. If a CCP or CCA candidate fails a second time they will lose their training entitlement check and will be required to retrain with an LTP to obtain a new training completion status check to start the assessor training and testing process over.
  4. In the case retaking the exam, a new exam fee must be paid before a new registration email is sent.

 

  • The functionality to support the re-test is still under development if you want to retest before the development is complete, please send an email to CMMC_Exam_Reporting@cmmcab.org and note in the subject line re-test request and we can manually enable this process.
