Once the first payment of $100 is sent with the signed Installment Agreement, your NCEA Certification Training Manual will be shipped to the address on your application. Then make five (5) additional equal installment payments commencing on the 1st of each month until the principal balance of $600 is paid in full.


The Small Print

Your completed Candidate Application, with supporting documents must be received by the NCEA Executive Office prior to the last scheduled installment payment due date as per the Installment Agreement. That is five-months after the date of signing and returning the agreement with your first payment. Failure to do so, will result in forfeiture of all paid installment fees, and additional fees will be required to obtain your Authorization-to-Test (ATT) to take the exam.
