Clarification of Mentorship Requirements

During this transitional period there has been a lot of confusion regarding who is required to complete the mentorship hours. Please read below to determine whether you will need to complete the mentorship hours prior to registering for the Intermediate or Advanced Exams.


Intermediate Exam Requirements:

You must complete the 90 Mentorship hours prior to registering for the Intermediate Exam if one of the following scenarios applies to you:

  1. You registered to complete one or all components of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 and did not attend the Exam.
  2. You registered for one or more components of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 and failed all of the components for which you registered. Failure to successfully complete one or more components of the Intermediate exam prior to 2005 does not constitute successful entry into the "old system".
  • Example 1: An individual who registered for only the case study component in 2005 and failed will be required to complete the 90 hours prior to registering for the Intermediate Exam in the future.
    You will be exempt from the 90 mentorship hours only if you successfully completed at least one component of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 but still have to complete the remaining component(s).
  • Example 2: An individual who registered for the case and the written components in 2005 and failed the case only, would be exempt from the 90 hours.

Advanced Exam Requirements

You must complete the 60 Mentorship hours prior to registering for the Advanced Exam if you have not yet attempted the Advanced Exam.

You will be exempt from the 60 mentorship hours only if you attempted the Advanced Exams prior to 2005 and were unsuccessful.
