Agreement of Ethical and Professional Standards

Please realize that failure to comply with any part of these ethical and professional standards may result in forfeiting your right to complete the exam, and proceed with certification. Your checkbox during your class registration process confirms your agreement to these terms.

Once you receive your exam, its content and your subsequent answers are to remain confidential and private. This confidentiality is requested throughout the exam process and after your completion of the exam. Sharing questions and/or answers with colleagues (regardless of their affiliation with the ICPA) is unacceptable. Taking the exam with others is prohibited.

It is expected that your responses will be utilizing the academic and/or clinical material covered in class and in your notes, combined with your own clinical experience and research. It is important that your answers be your original work, in your own words. Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated. If your work is found to be plagiarized from any source including the internet and/or taken from another candidate's exam, and/or taken from the notes without citation, you will fail the exam.
