This exam is offered to help you determine your level of knowledge and to practice taking a NABCEP exam. A passing score on this exam coupled with completion of the Basic SPARE class will provide you a maximum of 18 hours of prescribed hours to apply towards certification.
Registrations that are not paid at least 2 weeks prior to the class will be moved to a wait list and participants will be able to attend on a space available basis if they pay in full prior to the start of class.
Need to cancel your registration?
Cancellations must be made in writing to Sean Nicholson firstname.lastname@example.org at least 1 week prior to the start of class. Participants will be charged a $50.00 administrative fee. No refunds will be issued after that time. Cancellations will not be accepted by phone. Participant substitutions are allowed at any time.
What if ESF cancels the class?
SUNY-ESF Outreach reserves the right to cancel any classes that do not meet a minimum attendance number or for other events beyond our control. In that case, all participants will be fully refunded.
