How soon after taking my exam am I certified?

You will know your written exam score immediately upon completion. We are required to submit your field exam score to BPI within 24 hours. BPI will ultimately determine whether or not you passed the field exam and will share your certification status in their online candidate portal. BPI will mail out a paper certificate and ID card, within 4-6 weeks after certification is awarded. However, you may begin work functions immediately after you confirm your certification status online.
