IMPORTANT MESSAGE: COVID19 Updates and Fee Discount

We recognize that in the midst of COVID19, many of you are on the frontlines offering your personal care and expertise every day. We are grateful, humbled and indebted to you for your service.

Please see below for a few ways VACC is actively pursuing contingency plans and working to support you, our certificants, during this time:

  • Remote Testing: This week, VACC was approved by the NCCA to pursue remote proctoring for the June VA-BC™ exam cycle so that exams may potentially be taken from home should testing centers be restricted – or simply as another testing option if preferred.
  • Extended Registration Timeline: We are extending our registration timeline for the June VA-BC™ exam through the end of this month, April 30, 2020.
  • Discounted Fees: Due to the financial hardships many are facing, we will be offering the Early Registration discounted rate, which traditionally ends on March 20, through the end of April. If you applied after this, we will automatically refund you the difference.
  • Donation: We will very soon be making a monetary donation to the COVID19 effort in your honor. More details to come there.

Otherwise, we are proceeding as usual preparing for the June and December exam cycles, and our registration numbers are right in line with previous years. As new information becomes available, we will absolutely keep you informed and, regardless, will continue to work closely with you whatever may come our way.

If we may assist you in any way during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out.

With sincere gratitude,
Board of Directors
Vascular Access Certification Corporation (VACC)
