Leave personal items at home / Hotel Room
The only items allowed into the exam area is your identification & laptop so leave any backpacks, books, reading material, briefcases, and other personal items at home or hotel room. If you have items that cannot be left behind (such as cameras, purses/wallets, mobiles), the exam center may have small lockers available for temporary use during the exam taking time.

Other helpful information
At the exam center, IACVS requires that you accept the terms of a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) and complete a brief demographic survey before taking your certification exam.

Although food and drinks are not permitted in the exam rooms, many of the centers allow a break. There is a scheduled break of 20mins after the part 1 – A and before part 1 – B. If your exam center does not offer break time, you are allowed to leave the exam area as needed to get water, take medication, or use the restroom.

Note: The exam-taking clock does not stop when you leave your laptop for an unscheduled break. In most cases, applicants will not receive their score reports immediately after completing the exam. Score reporting timeframes vary for all applicants based on the case study submission and overall scoring by IACVS. Check with your regional exam center for complete information.
