Examination Fees

The examination fee for CPAN or CAPA certification is $314 for ASPAN members and $424 if not an ASPAN member.

* In order to receive the ASPAN member discount, you must already be an ASPAN member at the time that you apply online and provide an active ASPAN membership number.

If you apply to take both the CPAN® and CAPA® examinations on the same test date or on different dates in the same testing window you must complete a separate application for each examination and pay the fee for each examination.

For information about withdrawing from an examination, requesting a refund, or requesting a rollover from one administration window to another, please refer to the Certification Candidate Handbook for ABPANC’s policies. In addition, policies regarding if you are a “no-show” candidate for your scheduled examination appointment are defined in the Certification Candidate Handbook.

Discount for Unsuccessful Candidates

ABPANC is pleased to offer unsuccessful candidates a discount of $50 off the examination fee if they retake the examination within the next 12 months (within the next two administration windows).

Unsuccessful candidates will still be required to submit a complete application to retake the examination. Instructions on how to apply the discount will be provided in the score report that is mailed to the candidate.

Unsuccessful candidates who use the discount are not eligible for a withdrawal or rollover to a subsequent examination.
