Exam Preparation


The Certified Nerve Conduction Technologist (CNCT) Examination is a 4 hour examination administered online. Candidates can take the exam at any quiet location. The exam will use an artificial intelligence (AI) online proctor that will require candidates to have a webcam on their computer (webcam is not provided by ABEM). 

Prior to the computer-based examination, a detailed analysis of individual questions has been performed and a minimum passing score established. After completion of the exam, ABEM Executive Office Staff will notify candidates whether they passed or failed the examination.

The exam is a multiple choice written exam. There are approximately 150 questions and a 4 hour time limit to complete the exam. There are no video questions on the exam.

No other information about the examination, examination results, or performance on subsections of the examination will be made available to the candidates.

Study Resources 

The CNCT Exam Committee have put together a resource list of study resources for examination candidates.

  *Please note that the ABEM does not necessarily consult the material on this list in the development of examination questions.
