PCEP Instructions

PCEP Instructions


The PCEP online testing system includes two activities: 1) Individual practice unit tests, and 2) book exams

Individual practice unit tests can be completed as many times as desired, and no fee is required to complete the practice unit tests.  It is expected that the participant will have completed the unit pretests, read through the unit material and completed all activities in the unit, as well as the practice unit tests prior to attempting the book exam.

Book exams include all test items from the units in the book.  Successful completion of the book exam at 80% correct is required to receive the hours of participation for the book.  A certificate is available to be printed after successful completion of each book exam and must be printed at that time by choosing Display Certificate.  There are four book exams, one for each book of the PCEP program.  All or selected book exams can be completed, according to the preference of the participant.

If you experience technical difficulty, please email Technical Support.

If you have general questions about the information on these webpages regarding the UVA Online PCEP quiz and exam program please email Terri Ellison, MS, CME Program Manager.


NOTE: It is expected that you will complete all practice unit tests and book exams using Internet Explorer. If a different browser is used we cannot guarantee the validity of scores. Book exams and practice unit tests must be completed in one session; learners cannot save their work or suspend progress. Please do not start an exam unless you have time to complete and submit it.
