Computer-Based Testing (CBT)

With the exception of Ethics Is Good Business® ShortCourse™, exams are administered via Computer-Based Testing (CBT) through our testing provider, Pearson VUE. The registration fee provides for one testing session during the six-month eligibility period, which can be scheduled at the students convenience at a Pearson VUE testing center of their choice. Click here to locate your nearest Pearson VUE testing center.

Exam Eligibility Period

Students have a six-month eligibility period to schedule and take their exam. For Self-Study students, the eligibility period begins on the date of registration; for Classroom students, the eligibility period begins on the first day of class.

Exam Administration Fee (Includes Retakes, No-Shows, and Extensions)

Students who fail an exam, do not cancel a scheduled exam appointment at least 24 business hours prior, or wish to extend their eligibility period by an additional six months, will incur an Exam Administration Fee. This fee includes testing and administrative fees and gives students a new six-month eligibility period to complete the exam. This new six-month window begins when the payment is processed. For fee information, please view our current Price Sheet.

Course Completion

Successful completion of a course requires passing an exam with a minimum score of 70 percent. Upon registration, students are provided a six-month eligibility period in which to take the exam. Students requiring an additional eligibility period will incur an Exam Administration Fee for the course and will be required to purchase updated course materials if applicable. 

Study Method Transfer

If you wish to switch from one study method to another, you will incur a $150 (USD) Exam Administration Fee in addition to the price difference between the two study methods. Please contact an Education Coordinator at 1.800.235.BOMI (2664) for more information and/or assistance.

Self-Study Policies and Procedures

Self-Study students must register directly with BOMI International. Course materials will be sent directly to the mailing address listed on the registration form. Within two business days of registering, students will receive an e-mail confirmation of registration that will include instructions on how to schedule their examination at a Pearson VUE testing center. Self-Study students have six (6) months from the date of registration to successfully complete the exam.

BOMI International-Sponsored Accelerated Review Policies and Procedures

Accelerated Review classes are four, full-day sessions. Advance preparation is required. A coursebook will be sent to you prior to the class to help with preparation. Travel, hotel accommodations, and meals are not included in your registration fee. Class size in each location is limited. All courses, locations, instructors, and prices are subject to change. BOMI International will notify registrants of any changes in BOMI International-sponsored classes approximately two weeks in advance of the class start date. 

Registration Deadline

Registration Confirmation 

A course information sheet will be faxed or e-mailed to you as confirmation of your registration. Learning materials will be mailed under separate cover. 


To receive a full refund, course materials must be returned in the original shrink-wrap 30 days before the class start date. For cancellations received less than 30 days prior to the first day of class, credit can be applied to a Self-Study or Classroom offering. For cancellations less than two weeks prior to the first day of class, a $100 (USD) cancellation fee also applies. 

BOMI International-Sponsored Course Cancellations 

If insufficient enrollment necessitates cancellation of a BOMI-sponsored class, either in the Accelerated Review or Instructor-Led Online format, BOMI International will notify students approximately two weeks prior to the scheduled class and all fees will be refunded. Arrangements will be made for the return of learning materials, except eBooks which are nonrefundable.
