Workforce Professional Development Program Guidelines
Your written intent to test and corresponding fees must be received in the IAWP Administrative Office before you will be scheduled to take an exam.
You may test at any time during the year.
You may test anywhere with an Internet connection and an available computer.
You may take the tests in any order. However, you will not receive the “Master”designation until you have successfully completed testing for all four modules
You will receive your score upon the completion of your online test.
IAWP will mail your test scores confirmation within 30 days following testing. No test scores will be given over the phone.
To achieve a passing score you must correctly answer 75% of the test questions.
You have 36 months from your initial enrollment (receiving the first study guide) to successfully complete the entire WPDP program.
Regardless of whether you enroll in one module or all four, you have 36 months to successfully complete all four modules and corresponding exams, should the Workforce Development Master designation be your goal.
Should you fail an exam, you may retest as many times as you desire during your 36-month period for the published retest fee.
If you do not successfully complete the program in 36 months and later wish to continue, you will be required to pay a one-time re-enrollment fee, in addition to the cost of any yet-to-be-purchased exams or retest fees. You must still pay exam or retest fees.
The re-enrollment fee applies even if you are in a retest status when your 36 months expire.
IAWP requests that participants use their home address for all regular mail correspondence. This ensures the confidentiality of test scores.
