Are the wait times shorter for the CPNE?

  1. I was just wondering if the wait times are shorter now for the CPNE? I hopefully will be eligible in January.

    I think it always depends on which region/site you choose. If you choose NPAC, for example, they have more test sites -- stands to reason you'd get a date sooner, especially if you don't specify an exact location. When I applied for the CPNE at the end of 2007, I chose only MPAC, only Mansfield, and it took me nearly five months just to receive my date. Yes, just the date! However, I was not calling and checking on cancellation dates, which can also speed things along.
