Guide Program

GET A GUIDE Request A Guide
           

All NCP Exam Registrants qualify for a Guide if desired. Guides may be requested through December of each exam cycle. 

Guides do not take the place of an exam preparation training course but serve as resources to improve the NCP journey. Your assigned Guide can be asked questions and provide direction but is not responsible for training on subject matter. Guides are forbidden from discussing specific exam questions and/or content or to answer study questions.

A Guide will typically spend up to 5 hours during the candidate’s exam preparation answering questions about how and what to study, general check subject matter, and the exam experience. Guides are encouraged to discuss the four main blueprint categories and how to best allocate study time.

Being paired is based on Guide availability. Once paired, reassignment is possible by contacting 214-273-3218 or email ncp@theclearinghouse.org
