Preparing for the CRC® Comprehensive Exam

Prepare for the exam by first reviewing the CRC® Test Specifications. The four-hour, 200-question multiple-choice exam covers the domains of practice and knowledge required to perform tasks listed in the CRC® Test Specifications, and should be well understood before taking the exam. You may choose to use your own study materials and other resources to prepare. InFRE also provides optional print, live classroom review and online exam preparation resources to help candidates prepare for the exam.

What to Bring to an Exam
You should plan to arrive at your testing center at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled exam time and present your photo identification to the proctor.  If you arrive after your exam start time, you may not be admitted to the examination site. You may not use any of the following during the exam:

•    notes,
•    study materials,
•    textbooks or manuals,
•    calculator or other handheld device, telephone.

An online calculator will be enabled for your use during the exam.  Scratch paper and a pencil will also be provided by your proctor.

In the event that severe weather or another emergency forces the closure of an examination site on a scheduled examination date, your examination will be rescheduled.  Testing center personnel will attempt to contact you in this situation.
