The following table includes the 2022 exam schedule. Please note that an oral exam administration has been added in October. While this additional date is intended for candidates who must miss the main exam administration, or those who conditioned or failed a prior attempt, anyone who is eligible to sit for an oral exam may choose the October exam.

The October oral exam administration will have limited registration availability. Candidates are strongly encouraged to take the main oral exam administration unless they have an unavoidable life event.
