All IBCA certification exams are computer-based and can be taken in specially dedicated test centers, or even at home or in your office in the private mode in some locations, after getting your computer machine and the exam environment ExamStrong™-verified prior to taking the exam. If you are sponsored by your company or by your university, you will take your exam in a test-center specially and exclusively authorized for your organization. Examinees generally marking 65% of their answers correct qualify for the IBCA Credential award. However, since a complex multi-variable algorithm is used to take qualification decisions to nullify geographic and other environmental factors with potential to skew performance, the qualifying benchmark should not be expected to stay pegged exactly to 65%.
