CPNE Waiting Game

  1. 1
    Hi everyone:

    Very excited, I turned in my application for the CPNE on Monday (12-16-13) and all documents have been accepted as of Wednesday (12-18-13). Now the long wait begins. I will be interested how they will get in touch with me with a date (e-mail/phone).

    Either way I am very anxious and can't wait to hear from them!!!!

    Tic Toc Tic Toc, still waiting.

    Just wondering if anyone knows the REAL reason it takes so long to receive a date. I'm assuming the RPAC has to verify all the paperwork. I'm also curious how many students they have to process at any given time for the CPNE.

    Thanks for letting me get my nervous thoughts out!!!

    Due to bad weather at DFW airport my flight was cancelled & I had to re-schedule my workshop for April 2014.

    If you want to be scheduled faster, you may want to try the NPAC. I took my CPNE twice and each time, I did not have to wait for a month to get a CPNE schedule. I would say actually, that I got my first CPNE schedule so quick, in hindsight maybe I should not have accepted it because I was not that prepared yet but was afraid of losing a slot. I failed. The second time I applied for CPNE, I applied just a few days before you did, and got my schedule for the 1st weekend of January which I already passed. It was that quick. I received a call like a week after I submitted my application and in 3 weeks time I was testing. They have just recently added schedules at Queens, NY and although I chose to test in Albany this past January, there were also slots available in Queens. So if you are in a hurry to take the test, I suggest you consider NPAC.

    Thanks for the info!!! I'm not in a hurry to take the CPNE, just ready to get a date. Plus, if I changed to a different region I believe I would have to pay a penalty and I have paid enough money.

    Change in plans. I spoke with EC yesterday & switched from the MPAC to the NPAC. No penalty since my application was pending a date. Yeah!!!

    EC said they are still processing October 2013 applications for the MPAC & is 7-10 months to test.

    Thanks phengro for the idea to switch, I hope it works out & I hope to get a date soon.
