As was announced in August, the first online offering for the NCGFOA Finance Officer Certification Exams was scheduled to be Thursday and Friday, September 27 and 28. Given the widespread impact of Hurricane Florence and the demands that are going to be placed on management and finance officials over the next weeks and even months, the Certification Committee believed it best to postpone the first offering. Also, the University has been closed since late last week and is now dealing with unexpected IT issues, thus this will give them time to approve the final platform, a task that was scheduled for this week. The first online exams are now scheduled for Thursday, October 25 and Friday, October 26. Afterwards, the online exams will be held on the final successive Thursday and Friday of January, May, and September each year.
Within the next few weeks, the SOG’s Death and Taxes will feature details about the new format, changes in the program by-laws, and processes for registering and accessing the exams during the open timeframes. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone out there dealing with this disaster and we hope that you, your families, and your communities remain safe.
