V. Examination Process:

Diplomate candidates who pass the ABNM Part I-Written examination shall be considered "In the Examination Process" for a period of up to three years.  Each candidate “In the Examination Process” will have the opportunity to take the ABNM Part II-Oral examination up to a maximum of three times during this period.  If the earliest date for the third ABNM Part II-Oral examination is after the end of the three year period, or if a candidate fails the ABNM Part II-Oral examination after a third attempt, or if a candidate does not take and pass the ABNM Part II-Oral examination within this three year period, the candidate will no longer be designated as “In the Examination Process” and will be deemed to be “Not Certified” and must apply for, retake, and pass the ABNM Part I-Written examination.  All previous and newly adopted ABNM examination and application requirements in effect at the time of the new ABNM examination application must be fulfilled.

A candidate who fails to pass the ABNM Part I-Written examination or who is retaking the ABNM Part I-Written examination after having lost the status of being “In the Examination Process” or after a time lapse in ABNM eligibility, must resubmit a formal request to the Board to sit for the ABNM examinations and must submit a new and complete application packet.  Only after successfully passing the ABNM Part I-Written examination will a candidate be designated “In the Examination Process”.

Individuals who pass both the ABNM Part I-Written and the ABNM Part II-Oral Examinations shall be deemed to be "Board Certified” by and Diplomates of, the ABNM, for a period of ten years.
