Candidates who fail an initial examination may repeat the examination up to two times within six years of their initial attempt. No candidate may take an examination more than three times. Candidates applying for reexamination are required to submit updated information where necessary and pay the reexamination fee.
The UCNS believes that the ethics of candidates for certification are of concern. The following rules apply:
The UCNS Certification Council has the authority to revoke any certification issued by it for cause or to place a certificate holder on probation for a fixed or indefinite period of time. If a certificate is revoked, a written appeal may be submitted in accordance with the Certification Revocation Policy.
