Q: Do I need any other resources to be successful on the exam?
A: examCORE includes access to the ebook “Safety Professional’s Reference and Study Guide” by Dr. David Yates, an authorized calculator, as well as over 1,000 practice questions. We find that many learners also benefit from the exam-specific resources found on the BCSP page (ASP Blueprint References, CSP Blueprint References).
Q: After I study, what are the next steps to BCSP certification?
A: We find that learners are more successful when they have an exam date scheduled in advance of completing their study program. We recommend applying now for the certification, and if approved to sit for the exam, schedule the exam date to correspond with the last month or two of examCORE access. This method would give you the best chance at passing (more people pass the exam when the information is recent) and gives you the opportunity to extend examCORE access if necessary.
Q: How long do I have access to the online training?
A: You will have either six or nine months (depending on the product) of access to examCORE at purchase, which includes all videos, over 1,000 practice questions, exercises, and more. If you need more time, unlimited three-month extensions are available for purchase (only available before the access period expires). Certificates of completion are always available by logging into the examCORE user profile.
Q: After the initial examCORE access time period, can I extend the time?
A: Yes, unlimited three-month extensions are available anytime during the examCORE access period. After access expires, extensions are no longer available. Be sure to extend before your access expires!
Q: What is the examCORE Training Guarantee?
A: If an examCORE customer does not successfully complete their respective BCSP certification exam, BCSP examCORE offers a one-time six month examCORE access period at no charge.*
*A BCSP examCORE participant, to include examCORE Connect, must achieve a certificate of completion (i.e., finish all course modules and challenge questions, complete the pre-test, and achieve an 80% or higher on the post-test) in order to qualify for the one-time six month examCORE access period at no charge. These six months of access begin at the time the guarantee is approved. To request the guarantee, upload the BCSP unsuccessful/failed exam result to your examCORE user profile. Upon verification, you will be granted six months of examCORE access. A participant must submit their failed exam result and guarantee request within three months of the end of examCORE access (either the original time period or a purchased extension) to qualify for the examCORE guarantee.
Q: Is this training reimbursed for military and veterans?
A: Active-duty military can apply to their service-specific COOL (Credentialing Opportunities On-Line) program for credentialing and certifications. Not active duty or already transitioned to civilian life? Here is a link to the BCSP Military and Veteran Benefits page for more information.
