***** December 2013 Part II – PAM/TMOD Deadline Reminder *****
The registration deadline for the December 2013 Part II – PAM/TMOD is September 3, 2013. Late registration is open from September 4 – 18, but candidates who register during this period will incur a late fee of $400 in addition to the usual registration fee.
Candidates are urged to register with the NBEO and select their testing locations through Pearson VUE as early as possible to insure the widest selection of seats. Pearson VUE is currently holding the majority of its seats for NBEO candidates taking the PAM/TMOD examination on December 3rd or December 5th. When the hold is released on September 3rd testing site selection will be very limited and candidates may be required to travel.
