Who is eligible to sit for Cert-ICE?
Only licensed healthcare providers who are able to independently evaluate & treat patients are able to sit the Cert-ICE examination.
How long does it take to obtain Cert-ICE?

There is no deadline on courses “expiring,” however, the average time it takes to earn this certification is 2-4 years (taking 2-4 courses per year).

Can you tell me more about the Cert-ICE examination?

The test is always an in-person examination (no exceptions, ever). Testing takes place each year on the Friday prior to the ICE Sampler, our annual conference event. Purchasing a ticket to the ICE Sampler includes the ability to sit for Cert-ICE testing for those eligible to test.

This is likely the most rigorous examination you have ever faced and we are very transparent that the first-time pass rate is around 50%. You will be expected to perform a 60 minute evaluation using all of the clinical reasoning & evaluative skills taught from each course to specifically tailor the hour to the mock patient you are presented with. Following the mock evaluation, you will be given 2 hours to answer approximately 120 questions of didactic material from all 8 core courses that make up Cert-ICE.
