A Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) exam training will be held on January 12, 2024 at the Illinois Soybean Association in Bloomington, Illinois.  For more details, check ILSoyAdvisor.com in the future or contact Stephanie Porter at stephanie.porter@ilsoy.org.

Test takers currently have five years to pass both exams. So, if you take one and fail, you have 5 years from the first exam pass date to pass the second exam.

Coming soon: Future CCA test takers will be able to choose to just be tested on individual components of the exam.  If you take each performance objective separately, you have six months from passing the first objective to pass the other objectives.
