Session Description

*Additional steps required to complete registration. See session description below.

Take the EDAC exam at the HCD Expo & Conference to take advantage of a 10 percent discount plus a risk-free offer: You can retake the exam one additional time at no charge if you don’t pass. The exam session is limited to 60 seats, with only a number of spots available for walk-in candidates. Select this session to reserve your seat for the exam with your conference registration AND:

  1. Complete registration with the testing administrator Scantron (formerly Castle Worldwide) (; use code HCD19 to receive the 10 percent discount (total charge for exam with discount is $355.50).
  2. Once you receive the "Notice to Schedule" for your exam (within three business days), you will need to select the “Schedule at Testing Center” option and then select the “New Orleans Convention Center” location on Nov. 4 at 11:00 a.m.
  3. Receive confirmation notice 21 days prior or 3 days prior (if scheduling closer to the exam day)

Exam registration AND scheduling through Scantron must be completed at least 4 days prior to the exam date (by Oct. 31). A $50 walk-in fee will apply to candidates who do not complete the application and schedule the exam through Scantron by the Oct 31 deadline.

*Those who don't pass will be allowed to retake the exam again at a later date at no charge. Candidates must wait 60 days after taking the exam before they can retest. The retake exam must be completed within one year from the registration date.
