CPNE MPAC Questions

  1. Hi everyone! I applied for all MPAC sites for the CPNE. I was wondering if there were any sites that were problems or more favorable? How are the examiners? I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

    Very good question...I am considering Lubbock and Amarillo myself. For me...Lubbock is closer by about 100 miles...so, hoping that people cont. to like Lubbock. Good Luck to you! Traci

    I didn't care for Racine much, but take that with a grain of salt.

    I've heard so many different opinions on the issue. I was told people who test in the south (SPAC) compared to the north (NPAC) pass more often. I guess because of the whole southern hospitality thing. I was told you fail for "little things" up north, for something that is not a critical element or physical or emotional jeopardy. I believe it you prepare well trust in yourself and for me a higher power success can be attained.

    Good luck to us all and God Bless.:redpinkhe

    I really don't think that NPAC and SPAC have different rules, they both go by the same guidelines. I tested in Utica, NY and everyone I tested with were more than courteous, profressional and friendly.

    ...the same guidelines with a big dose of human subjectivity.

    I gotta say Utica was awesome! IMO, they were not nearly as anal as some places I have heard about. I am a living witness! I violated a things and not once did my PCS end. I say that to let you all know that they can be forgiving on a few things. In my case it was not an all or nothing kinds thing.

    Hmmmm...I don't know....I tested in Albany, and folks either knew their critical elements and passed, or didn't know them and failed. I didn't really notice that anyone had any special leeway....

    Again thats true. I think I kinda down played all the hard work I put into studying in the above post. I knew my critical elements upside down and sideways. I think(know) the CE can tell that about a person and it makes their job a little easier. I think anyone can pass at all the sites if they are well prepared.
