IMPORTANT MESSAGE: COVID19 Updates and Traditional Pricing

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

  • Discounted Fees for Recertification by CE Ended: Due to the financial hardships many are facing, we offered discounted pricing at the Early Registration rate from September 1 through July 5. Traditional pricing is now back in effect July 6 – August 31.
  • Recertification by Exam:
    • June Test Window Extended Through July: To accommodate seating limitations due to COVID-19, you may schedule to take your test during June or July.
    • Remote Testing Available: As of May 4, candidates can schedule the VA-BC™ exam to be taken remotely.
  • Donation: We will very soon be making a monetary donation to the COVID19 effort in your honor. More details to come there.
