Waiting Period Following a Failed Exam

 IC&RC currently has a minimum 60-day waiting period following a failed exam. However, as of May 1, 2017, IC&RC will be moving to a 90-day waiting period.

Why do we have a waiting period? Waiting periods help protect the security of our examinations by prohibiting candidates from taking back-to-back examinations that may result in memorization of examination questions.
