Course Exams 

To obtain a BOMI International certificate and/or designation, students are required to successfully complete and pass an exam at the end of each course. Students have a six-month eligibility period to take their exam. For online self-paced courses, the eligibility period begins on the date of registration; for classroom students, the eligibility period begins as of the first day of class. If a student does not take the exam within this period, the student must pay an Exam Administration Fee to begin a new six-month eligibility period. 

All course-level exams will be taken in BOMI's Learning Portal. If you have taken an Online Self-Paced, Live Virtual Learning or Collaborative Virtual Learning course, you are already familiar with the portal. If you have not taken a course through BOMI's Learning Portal, you will receive a separate email with login credentials.

Once you are ready to take your exam, simply log in and begin your test in the Learning Portal. These exams are timed and not proctored. All eligibility requirements, NDA, Code of Professional Ethics and Conduct are required, so please review prior to taking your exam.

Course Exam Extensions

If you need an exam extension, you may extend your eligibility for an additional six-month period. An exam administration fee of $150 applies. This fee applies to the following scenarios:

• Retest: Failing an exam and needing to retake at a later date.

• Extension: Wishing to extend the eligible period for other reasons.

If you are enrolled in an Online Self-Paced course, the exam administration fee will extend your BOMI Learning Portal access for an additional six months. This enables you to review course materials and practice exams before retaking the final course exam.

Unsure if your eligible to extend your eligibility? Call 1.800.235.2664 or email service@bomi.org to ask an Education Coordinator.
