Policy on Accommodations for Candidates with Disabilities or Impairments

CFRE International is committed to ensuring that all eligible candidates with disabilities or impairments, regardless of country of residence, are given the opportunity to meet certification requirements. For candidates with disabilities or impairments, CFRE International shall endeavor to make reasonable accommodations. These accommodations shall be within the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 USCG Section 12101, et seq.) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended (42 USC 2000e, et seq.), or comparable legislation in the country in which the candidate is testing, in accommodating candidates who, because of a disability or impairment, need special arrangements to enable them to take an examination.

In order to request Special Accommodations, candidates must submit the request through the application process and supply a letter from a licensed physician, optometrist, social worker, psychologist or other appropriate professional (including title, credentials, address, and telephone number on his/her letterhead). This letter should describe the nature of the functional limitation as it applies to taking a standardized, multiple-choice examination and the specific accommodations needed for testing. If approved by CFRE International, these accommodations will be provided at no additional charge to the candidate.

Requests for Special Accommodations must be made at the time of application, and no later than sixty (60) days prior to the desired examination date. Standard Provisions for ensuring test security shall remain in force.
