Scheduling your BCC Exam

Once you’ve been approved to sit for the BCC exam, you will receive an e-mail from Pearson VUE with your candidate ID number. There are two ways to schedule an appointment for the examination:

1. Online scheduling is the preferred method. To use this service:

  • Retrieve your candidate ID number from the e-mail you received.
  • Go to www.pearsonvue.com/cce and select “Create Account.”
  • Follow the simple, step-by-step instructions to select your examination program and register for an examination.


2. Telephone: Call Pearson VUE at +1.866.904.4432 to schedule an examination appointment. This toll-free number is answered from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central time Monday through Friday. You may experience extended hold times.

When scheduling an examination, be prepared to confirm a location and a preferred date and time for testing, and to provide your client candidate ID number. Pearson VUE uses the client candidate ID as an identification number in maintaining your record. When you contact Pearson VUE to schedule an examination appointment, you will be notified of the time to report to the testing center. Please make a note of it, because you will not receive an admission letter.

Applicants can test a maximum of three times during the three-year period that their BCC application remains open, with a minimum three-month waiting period between exams. Only upon passing the BCCE will you be certified as a BCC.

If you have any questions about the BCCE, please contact us at credentialinfo@cce-global.org, subject line "BCC."
