CPESC Certification Procedures and Standards
Article III. - In-Training Status
Section 5. CPESC-IT Retest Policy
A CPESC-IT registrant is allowed up to two (2) retests on the Practical Application part of the CPESC Exam. Failing to achieve a passing score on the second retest is a basis for suspension of CPESC-IT status. If suspended, the registrant will have three (3) years in which to get the suspension lifted and to pass the retest. After that, the CPESC-IT status may be revoked by action of the CPESC Council (see Article II, Section 4).
To lift the suspension, the registrant must petition the CPESC Council with evidence showing training courses the registrant has taken to improve their knowledge of erosion and sediment control principles and practices. If approved by the Council, the registrant will be granted one additional retest. The registrant may appeal the decision of the Council by providing additional supportive data. Failing to achieve a passing score on this retest is a basis for revocation of CPESC-IT status.
