Workshops are offered in several different areas depending upon the conference. ICCP offers a workshop on our exams during the conference. A tutor leads the discussion on several different examinations.
Certification exams are offered at every conference as “pay-if-you-pass”, if you don’t pass you don’t pay a fee. This is the best way to take an exam- no pressure to pass the exam.
