Candidates can chose between two exam methods by which to become BONENT certified:

ppe spacer Paper & Pencil Exam (PPE) spacer cbt spacer Computer Based Testing (Click for more info)
The following points are the same for both exam methods:
  • Use the same application (candidates must indicate PPE or CBT)
  • Require the same amount of time
  • Have the same questions
  • Have a proctor on site
  • You choose your own exam site

The differences between the two exam methods are:
  • Each exam method has its own separate list of locations
  • Candidates receive an unofficial printout of their scores as soon as the CBT exam is completed
  • There is no application deadline for the CBT

Confirmation letters will be sent after your application has been processed and approved. The approximate timeframe of when you receive your confirmation letter depends on the exam method you choose:
  • PPE — 2 weeks before the exam
  • CBT — 4 weeks after BONENT receives your application
  • Taking the BONENT exam by Computer Based Testing (CBT) requires basic knowledge of how to use a computer. The exam covers the same material as the Paper & Pencil Exam (PPE). While taking the exam, candidates are able to skip questions, go back to a previous question and change answers.
