Applicant Handbook

The September 2020 Applicant Handbook is available here.

Applicants for the MDCB Certification Exam are responsible for ensuring completion and submission of the application as per the specifications outlined in the handbook.

Each applicant must be aware of the information outlined in the handbook and the most current information in regard to exam administration, eligibility, application requirements, deadlines, and adherence to the Ethical Standards of the MDCB.  Candidates must meet the eligibility requirements in effect at the time of application.

Common Pitfalls of Exam Applications:

  • Failure to “Submit Application”
  • Improper documentation, i.e. program diplomas not in pdf format, program transcripts are not official in scanned pdf format corresponding to diploma confer date, no name change documentation where appropriate.
