FTCE Professional Education Exam Registration

To register for the exam, you must first create an FTCE/FELE account. Once you are logged in, select “Professional Education” as your exam. From there, you can register for the exam, pay the $150 testing fee, and schedule your testing appointment.

Test Day

On the day of the exam, you should arrive at the testing center about 30 minutes early to allow time for the check-in process. After you arrive, you will be asked to sign in and provide two valid forms of government-issued ID, one of which must contain your photo. Your photograph will then be taken, and a biometric scan of your palm vein will be taken for identification and security purposes.

Before the exam begins, you will be asked to place all personal items in a locker outside the testing room, or you may be asked to leave them in your car. This includes your cell phone, calculators, books, watches, bags/backpacks, food, and jewelry.

Once the test begins, you will be allowed to take breaks. However, the timer will not be stopped during your break, so use your break time carefully.

How the FTCE Professional Education Exam is Scored

Your FTCE score is determined by taking the number of questions you answered correctly (your “raw” score) and converting it to a scaled score. To pass, you will need to achieve a scaled score of at least 200. This means that you must answer at least 71% of the questions correctly.

You will receive your official score report within four weeks after testing.
