Event Online Testing (EOT)

Event Online Testing (EOT) allows candidates to take CCO written exams at authorized testing sites via computer. Benefits of EOT include:

  • Greater flexibility in scheduling and rescheduling
  • Immediate score reporting*
  • No late application or rescheduling fees

* Preliminary results will be available immediately. All results and test administration are subject to review and approval following standard testing protocols.

What Does EOT Look Like?

Candidates take exams via a computer at an authorized test site. Exams that require supplements (e.g., load charts) or calculators have these available on-screen. In place of scratch paper, candidates may use a physical whiteboard/dry erase board up to 8.5 in. x 11 in. or an on-screen whiteboard that is built into the exam. 

CCO has prepared a video demonstrating how the testing platform works:

Through the myCCO Portal, candidates have access to a demo exam at no cost. This demo exam is intended to provide a test simulation experience. Candidates have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with how to navigate through the exam and utilize the on-screen tools including:

  • Answering questions
  • Navigating through questions
  • Using a calculator
  • View and navigate supplements
  • Use the whiteboard
  • Record notes
  • Highlight and strike through text
  • Mark items for review
  • Provide comments on questions or the exam


Fees for all exams as well as any related fees can be found at
