ABO Advanced Examination April - June 2021

The Advanced Certification designation, ABO-AC, are earned only after a practitioner has attained several years of experience, completes a prescribed curriculum of advanced education, and achieves a passing score on the rigorous examination. Test specifications are posted on this site on the examination handbook.

Having earned the basic ABO certification, and completed one recertification period (3 years) you are eligible to take the Advanced exam.

Exams are given in English, via computer at a Prometric testing facility, or through Remote Proctor and the exam is 3 hours long.

ABO Master who are not currently ABO certified, may obtain Advanced Certification by re-taking and passing the entry level examination (NOCE). Having passed the NOCE again, the Advanced Certification status may be requested and granted, without having to take the Advanced Examination. A certificate will be provided upon request at a nominal fee.
