Candidates: FAQs Regarding COVID-19
We are committed to supporting our Candidates by providing timely and accurate information during the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we will follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as government and WHO recommendations while working to minimize the impact on our Candidates and Membership.
Many Candidates who were scheduled to sit for the March 2020 FDP exam were the first to experience the disruption created by the current situation. Given that the FDPI’s paramount concern and priority is the health and well-being of our Candidates during the exam experience, we are offering these impacted Candidates the opportunity to sit for the October/November exam cycle, at no charge. Questions may be directed to email@example.com

More information about their risk mitigation efforts and management of the COVID-19 pandemic is available on their website, here.
