Education Providers and Sponsors

NOTICE: Education Providers and Sponsors:

As we all work together to adhere to the precautionary restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis, the OCDP Board is granting Sponsors and Providers the option to arrange different delivery methods for the trainings previously approved by the Board.   This option is offered for the duration of the Governors state of emergency for COVID-19 with the stipulation that there be no changes to the course curriculum/content and no changes to the course Presenters. 


Due to COVID-19,  Effective Immediately, and for a period of 30 days from today, ALL IC & RC EXAM TESTING SERVICES ARE HALTED throughout the United States and Canada. 

IC & RC teams are actively reaching out to individuals with testing appointments today and throughout the closure period.  IC& RC will be taking measures to reschedule those impacted appointments into a new date after the planned re-opening and will be communicating that information to the impacted individuals.  IC &RC will work closely with the test takers to find new appointment dates and times that work for their schedules, and we will be waiving any rescheduling fees.

If you have any questions, kindly email and they will respond as quickly as possible.
