          New Requirements for Certiport Exams Being Enforced at NLC

          This year there is a new requirement that has been implemented by Certiport—at the direction of Microsoft and Pearson VUE—regarding any and all MOS and MTA exams incorporated into the BPA Workplace Skills Assessment Program (WSAP).  All students under the age of 18 will be required to submit a signed parental consent form which must be on file with the National Center in order for scores to be released to BPA at Nationals.

          If there is no parental consent form on file with the National Center on or before May 9, 2018, contestant scores will not be released to BPA and students' overall scores for contests will be drastically affected.

          Please download the form, complete, and then follow the instructions for uploading this form to National BPA using the pre-submit system. This form must be on file with the National Center for any and all student contestants who are/will be under the age of 18 before May 13, 2018.

          Certiport Parental Consent Form

          It is strongly encouraged that all states include this newly required parental consent form in all BPA materials and packets for students who may and/or will be advancing to Nationals. Please direct any questions regarding the new requirement to Dustin Devers.  Additionally, Certiport will accept scanned original signatures, however, they will not accept digital signatures; so, the form must physically be signed before scanned and submitted.
