Level I Certification

Level I Requirements

  • Study the Level I Clerk Guide
  • Complete a 32-hour New Clerks Seminar
  • Complete 40 hours of approved education within 3 years (including New Clerk Seminar)
  • Attend Level I Prep Session (optional but highly recommended)
  • Take and pass the Level I exam ($75 for members & $150 for non-members)
  • Submit application for certification

You are not certified until you complete the application requirements for Level I. 

A passing exam grade does not mean you are certified.  You will get a number grade only if unsuccessful.  Results are available on the TMCEC personal profile ONLY.  Results will not be released to anyone other than the person taking the test.

Your Level I test will expire if not used in the application process within 3 years of the test date.

Once your application has been submitted and approved, you will receive a certificate by mail from TCCA.  Upon receipt of the certificate, you may place the designation of CCCI following your name.

Once certified at Level, you may begin steps to become certified at Level II.
