So I just passed my last exam section on 8/25, and I'm still on cloud 9. Thus, I can't get my head on straight to figure out how to do the ethics exam in California lols. I purchased the study material yesterday. All I know that it is an open book exam, and I have 6 attempts to pass with a minimum of 90%. But the question is, when do I take the exam? No info to be found on the Cal PETH website. Please help =.=!
Also, I was born in January, odd year number, so if I apply to get my initial license by the end of this year, I will have to renew it again on January next year? I am debating whether I should wait so that I don't have to reapply/repay when having the license for only 4 months or just apply it now for not risking that my manager might change her mind not to sign the experience paper 🙁 What should I do guys?
First off, congratulations! Secondly, I'll preface this with I'm not in CA, nor am I familiar with CA requirements. Hopefully someone else can chime in with ethics exam help. In regards to licensure, I'd apply right away. Like, yesterday! According to information I found on the CalCPA site, initial license fees are prorated.
“Because of the way expiration dates are assigned, your initial licensing period may be less than two years. CE and initial license fees are prorated to reflect the actual period of time you hold your license prior to the first renewal.” https://www.dca.ca.gov/cba/applicants/applbook.pdf [page 15 of document, or 23 of 26 pdf]
There should be a link in your confirmation email that takes you to the test page. I suggest you print out the test and mark your answers on the printout. Then go back in and click on the answers you have chosen.
