August examination results are being released as of 4:00 pm on September 21 and will be available in your BACB Gateway account within 72 hours.

If you passed the examination, your certification number will be available in your BACB Gateway Account within the next week and your certificate will be sent to the address in your Gateway Account later in October. In the meantime, we are experiencing high call volumes and wait times, as well as large amounts of website traffic.
