Failed Annual Quizzes
Diplomates have three attempts to pass the annual C-cert quiz. Any diplomate who fails a C-cert quiz may re-take the quiz two additional times in the same year. If a Diplomate should fail the third attempt, their certification status will change to “Certified – Not Meeting Requirements.” Diplomates will be provided three more attempts in the following year after failing the previous year. If a diplomate does not pass the quiz in the following year after three attempts, they are no longer certified. Certification may be regained through passage of the certification examination.
