Thanks to feedback, we are once again making available a payment plan option to pay for certification fees. The payment plan is designed to ease the financial burden for anybody interested in pursuing National Board certification or Maintenance of Certification. The payment plan is available whether you are pursuing one component this year, all four, or any combination in between. It’s also available for retake purchases and for First Time Candidates and Maintenance of Certification. 

Some Details

The payment plan has the following benefits:

  • It’s quick and easy to set up

  • You can spread the cost of your component(s) over six equal monthly installments (about $80 per component per month)

  • No interest or fees and no credit check

The payment plan will not increase the cost at all--it simply breaks up the component fees and allows you to pay them in six monthly installments. Under this plan, each component will cost about $80 per month! 

Find out more about the new payment plan, including helpful FAQs, and how you can utilize the flexibility here.

Act Now

You will need a National Board account to sign up for the payment plan. Access your account or  create your National Board account here.
