Once your students have completed all of your program requirements, you will submit their information into REPS. Please refer to the REPS Program Director Guide or REPS Quick Start Guide for instructions on using REPS and submitting students for registration eligibility.
Inquiries related to registration eligibility and using REPS can be emailed to email@example.com.
The normal processing time for a candidate submission is a week. You will receive an email confirmation when your class has been approved. Your students will receive an Authorization to Test email from CDR’s testing vendor Pearson VUE within 48 hours of class approval. This email contains authorization dates (an initial year), a link to the Handbook for Candidates—for RDs and for DTRs—and information on setting up an account on Pearson VUE’s website to schedule their examination.
