ICSC works in partnership with Prometric to ensure that test takers with unique needs have full and equal access to all programs and services. If you have a documented disability that would prevent you from taking the exam under standard conditions, you may request a reasonable accommodation. All test sites are accessible to candidates with disabilities. Applicants requesting accommodation on the basis of a learning disability must also submit a diagnosis of the disability corroborated by psychological testing.

  • 30-days advance notice required
  • Submit requests in writing to certification@icsc.org.
  • Accommodation requests are considered on a case by case basis.
  • Documentation may be required 

ICSC maintains policies and procedures with regards to day-to-day business practices to ensure that confidential information received by and entrusted to ICSC for the purposes of certification is not disclosed inappropriately. In order to protect the confidentiality of candidates, written authorization is required before information regarding an individual's status is released or discussed with a third party.
