  3. Complete the application and pay the application fee. A completed application must be submitted through www.castleworldwide.com/clp before a candidate can schedule his/her testing appointment. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications at least 30 days prior to the opening of the testing window to ensure the best selection of test location/date options. Upon the approval of your application, CASTLE Worldwide, our testing partner, will notify you of your eligibility to sit for the examination and will provide you with a username, password, and directions on how to schedule a testing session. 

  4. Schedule a testing session at least 4 business days prior to the desired test date.

  6. Wait for the examination results. Score reports will be available approximately six to eight weeks following the close of the testing window via an online score report portal. For reasons of privacy and confidentiality, examination results are released only through the score report portal. Examination results will not be given via telephone or fax.
