Register

Register and pay the exam fee online through your ABEM Personal Page.

Submit ADA Accommodations

If you need an accommodation for the ConCert™ Exam, please submit your written request at least eight weeks before your exam date. There is limited seating for those testing under special circumstances.

If you request accommodations under the Policy on Americans with Disabilities Act, ABEM must schedule your exam appointment for you. Pearson VUE cannot work directly with you to schedule or change appointments if you are testing under special circumstances.

Schedule Your Appointment

Once you are registered, ABEM will send you a registration email with information on scheduling your appointment with Pearson VUE. You must schedule a specific 5-hour, 15-minute examination appointment, during the six-day testing window, at a testing center near you. Locate the nearest Pearson VUE testing center at www.pearsonvue.com/abem/locate.

To increase your chance of receiving the appointment of your choice, schedule your examination as soon as possible. You may schedule your appointment through the Pearson VUE at www.pearsonvue.com/abem. You may also schedule your seating assignment by calling Pearson VUE at 877.378.8378.

Exam scheduling closes 24 hours before the date you want to take your examination.

Rescheduling

If you wish to reschedule your appointment, call Pearson VUE at 877-378-8378. ABEM will charge you a rescheduling fee of $145 if you are unable to reschedule more than 24 hours in advance.

If you are unable to take the exam, you may obtain a refund of your exam fee, less a 10 percent administrative fee, by doing the following:

  1. Cancel your examination appointment with Pearson VUE no later than 24 hours before your scheduled appointment.
  2. Notify ABEM in writing that you cancelled your appointment with Pearson VUE and request the fee refund by the day before the last day of the testing window.
