How to Apply

Applying for the HACP is easy! Here’s how it works:

1. Submit your application either by phone, fax, or mail. If you are paying by check, then you must submit your application by mail. Credit cards may be used in any type of registration.

2. You will need to decide at the time of your application whether you want to take the exam on-line or at an in-person proctored test site. Proctored exams are accompanied by a preparation course held the day prior to the examination. On-line exams can be taken at any time during the year, while in-person proctored exams are offered annually.

3. You will be notified by email once we have received and approved your application.

  • If you are taking the exam on-line, your contact information will be forwarded to Exam Builder.com. You will be notified when you are able to take the exam.
    At that point, follow instructions in the 2017 Candidate Applicant Handbook.
  • If you are taking the exam at an in-person proctored location, note the specific location on the application form. Location details are on the website. Applicants will be responsible for procuring their own travel arrangements.
