    I am working with offenders in our state. It's a new braille program. We have one offender who has successfully finished his Certification. YEAH! He would like to take the formating exam.  Is there a requirement on how long you have to wait after receiving certification to apply for Formatting Certification?

    If he doesn't pass, how many times will he have to attempt? Just in case he fails.

    Hi Robin!

    There is no requirement for waiting before taking the NBA Braille Formats Exam. Once a student feels confident they are ready, they can take the Formats Exam.

    The NBA Braille Formats Exam can be taken as many times as an individual needs, but after three consecutive failed attempts, the individual must wait one year before their fourth attempt.

    For individuals sitting for the exam who are incarcerated, there is a protocol in place that requires the use of a proctor. Give a call to the office when you have a moment and we can chat more about that protocol and how to get them going on the exam.
