Certiport Parental Consent Form

Requirements for Certiport Exams Being Enforced at NLC

This year there is a requirement that has been implemented by Certiportat the direction of Microsoft and Pearson VUE—regarding any and all MOS and Information Technology Specialist (ITS) exams incorporated into the BPA Workplace Skills Assessment Program (WSAP).  All students under the age of 18 will be required to submit a signed parental consent form which must be on file with the National Center in order for scores to be released to BPA at Nationals.

Please download the form, complete it, and then upload it using the form below.

This form must be on file with the National Center for any and all student contestants who are/will be under the age of 18 before May 1, 2024.

It is strongly encouraged that all states include this newly required parental consent form in all BPA materials and packets for students who may and/or will be advancing to Nationals. Please direct any questions regarding the new requirement to Patrick Schultz.  Additionally, Certiport will accept scanned original signatures, however, they will not accept digital signatures; so, the form must physically be signed before being scanned and submitted.
