The Ordination Examinations are proctored examinations administered twice yearly at designated seminary and presbytery testing sites. A list of these testing sites is available from the Office of Preparation for Ministry/Exams by clicking here.
Registration for the Senior Ordination Examinations requires the approval of the candidate’s Committee on Preparation for Ministry. Once you have completed the registration forms on this site, your request to take the exams will be automatically communicated to your CPM moderator by email. Your registration is not complete until the CPM moderator responds to that email by providing the necessary authorizations. You will receive an email confirmation when your registration has been finalized. For more information about the registration requirements and process, please visit the Office of Preparation for Ministry/Exams website.
Registration for the Bible Content Examination does not require the approval of the candidate's Committee on Preparation for Ministry unless special accommodations or a special proctor is requested.
The Ordination Examinations are available in English, Korean and Spanish. During registration you will select which language you prefer for the examinations. You may also request any required special arrangements related to learning disabilities or physical handicaps and/or a special proctor for those unable to travel to one of the regular testing sites. These requests must be approved by the CPM as part of the authorization process.
