What’s the best way to prepare for the test?

To help you pass the test you should study the 12 core functions, have a good background in pharmacology, and learn about counseling and supervision. Visit our training page for study resources.

If I fail my test, how soon can I retake it?

There is a 60-day waiting period to retake the same test. You may take a different test within that 60-day time period.

How do I schedule for the test?

Once you are registered you will receive an e-mail telling you how to schedule for your test with choices of testing locations and times. The testing company requires you to schedule your own test.

Can I change my test date once I schedule?

If you reschedule there will be a $25 charge. If you reschedule within 10 business days of the test date there will be a $115 charge. These charges passed on to ICAADA by the testing company and represent no income for ICAADA.

If I fail my test, do I have to pay again?

Yes, each time you register for the test the fee is $200.
