National Resource Center for Youth Services: Residential Child and Youth Care Professional Certification


RCYCP Exam Instructions

Registering yourself as a trainee

If your trainer has already registered you and NRCYS has received payment, you are ready to take the test.

If you are registering yourself, visit the Trainee Registration page.

  1. Complete all fields and select your agency from the dropdown menu. If you have a question about which agency to select, verify this with your trainer.
  2. Select "Submit" to complete your registration.

Taking the test

After your training hours are logged in as completed and NRCYS receives payment for your testing, you will receive an email to the address you entered.

Once you receive your login ID to take the test, follow these instructions very carefully. You may only take the test twice on your user ID, so do not begin to take the test unless you have at least TWO HOURS to complete it. If you experience difficulties and need to reset your testing ID, check with your trainer. (Note: you must have JavaScript enabled on your web browser to take the test. This is usually a default setting.)

If you need assistance, call us at (800) 274-2687 or email
