How to Register For and Schedule an ICC Special Inspection Exam

In the video above, I go through the process of registering for and scheduling an ICC special inspection exam.

Paying for an Exam

The first step is creating an account with ICC (International Code Council) because the registration process is centered around your ICC account. If you don't have an account, you can create one here.

After creating an account, simply log in and click on the myICC tab. The myICC section is where you can see your active certifications. Also, you can click on "Exams" and then "Exam Catalog" to see the list of exams that ICC offers along with their prices. To find the exam you're interested in, do a search with CTRL + F (Windows) or Command + F (Mac).

Next, click the shopping cart next to the exam title. A new window will open with a webpage about the exam. For the exam format, choose "Computer-based (Pearson VUE)" because that is the only option. Then, click "Add to Cart".

The next couple of screens are pretty straight-forward. You'll see a checkout screen and you'll have to enter your payment information to complete the transaction.

Scheduling Your Test

After you buy an exam, you still have to schedule a date and time to take the test. To do this, go back to your myICC page. Click "Exams" again and you should see the test you bought under "My Exams". You might have to click "Refresh" to show the exam.

Next, click the pencil icon under the "Action" heading. This will take you to the Pearson VUE website where you can schedule a time to take the exam.

On Pearson VUE's site, you should see the exam you bought. Click on the exam and then click "Schedule this Exam".

You should then see a list of testing centers ranked by how close they are to your address. Click the testing center where you want to take the test. Then, click "Next".

The next screen has a calendar that shows the available dates for the test center. Click the best date for you and then scroll down and choose an available time. If you don't like any of the dates or times, you can click "Change Test Centers" on the left to choose a different test center.

Once you click on a date and time, you can click "Proceed to Checkout". The rest of the process is just a few more screens. You'll have to confirm your personal information and agree to ICC policies. Then, you can submit the order and lock in the date and time of your test.
