All candidates will have an opportunity to submit an online incident report regarding any testing irregularity at the conclusion of the examination while at the Pearson VUE Professional Center. If a candidate is unable to complete an incident report at the end of the exam, NBEO will accept incident reports at firstname.lastname@example.org up to 72 hours after the exam. Upon receipt of notification that an irregularity has occurred, NBEO will examine the situation and determine whether action is warranted. If NBEO does not receive an incident report within 72 hours of the exam, no action will be taken and the NBEO will not investigate.
