The online format eliminates the need for travel, venue rental, event planning expenses, and other overhead costs.

Test & Certification


Tests are administered in the form of multiple choice questions. Students must demonstrate mastery by passing an exam with a score of 80% or higher before they can move onto the next module. Every test is graded automatically through the IBCCES University training system. You receive results shortly upon submission.

Upon completion of all sessions, you will need to take a final exam. Upon completion of the final exam with a score of 80%, you will receive a digital Proof of Completion that you can print out as needed.

From the time you submit your application, you will have a total of 90 days to complete your training (if applicable) and exam. If additional time is needed, please feel free to contact IBCCES at [email protected].

Required and Suggested Materials


A comprehensive Study Guide is available for the Autism Certificate exam.

Course Structure


Study Materials:

A study guide will be available for download from IBBCES University to help people study for the exam, but participants are encouraged to take their own notes. It is best that you review the study materials prior to the session so that you will have an easier time following along with the content.

The online training program is extremely easy to use.  However, if there are any questions you will be assigned an implementation specialist who will be able to walk you through the process.


Upon completion of each session, participants will need to complete a multiple choice quiz that is graded and instant results are available.  The results of the quizzes are NOT calculated on the certification exam.  The purpose of the quizzes is to reinforce learning and also provide you with measurement tools to test your understanding of the content on that particular module.

Course Duration & Pacing:

Each participant will be given 60 days to complete the course.

Participants can go through the course at their own pace, as long as they make sure that they are able to complete the course within the allotted 60 day period.

In case a participant does not complete the course within the 60 day period, there is a button in your application to reactivate your account.
