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.
