The National C License Retest-Performance Center

A retest is an additional opportunity to earn a passing grade (green light) on the Final Training Session assignment and Assessment.

Once a candidate who received a Provisional Status registers for a retest:

  • Candidates must contact the State Association in which they attended the original C course to schedule a reassessment. 
  • When can a candidate attend a retest? There is a 2 month wait period before candidate can register for reassessment. 
  • After the initial contact between the candidate and the instructor, the candidate has 1 week to submit their training session into the Learning Center.
  • Upon submission, the instructor will provide feedback on the training session plan within 7 days.
  • After the instructor submits the feedback, the candidate has 3 weeks to upload their video and reflection following their training session.
  • After uploading the training session video the instructor will asses the video and provide feedback within 10 days.
  • After the 10 days the instructor will communicate the outcome of the reassessment through the Learning Center. 

The same criteria followed at the original course will be used for the (retest) assessment.

If the candidate receives a red light on the retest, or if the 12-month period expires, the candidate would be required to retake the entire cours

Note: A no-show by a candidate, who registers for a Retest, will count as an official retest opportunity.
