All extension purchases are reviewed, verified, and approved at the discretion of BDS prior to a manual license adjustment that may take up to 48 hours to process. Orders that do not meet eligibility will be voided and a notification will be emailed to the customer.
An extension will affect the 6 month window requirement for the BDS money-back guarantee and the free extension policies coinciding with a BACB exam failure. BDS policies require module completion within 6 months from the actual exam date. Customers may recalculate a 6 month time frame by changing the “begin” date on the Course Completion Report. Any modules completed to 100% prior to the new “begin” date will present without data indicating that a retake is necessary. The new “begin” date will not become permanent but will revert back to the initial license begin date. Monitor module completion periodically.
Example #1: A CBA 6 month license begins on 2/10/20 and expires on 8/10/20. A 3 week extension is purchased and the license expiration date is adjusted to 9/1/20. The BCBA exam is taken on 8/31/20. BDS will review module completion from the CBA Course Completion Report from 3/1/20 (NOT from 2/10/20) to 9/1/20. Any module completed from 2/10/20 to 3/1/20 needs to be retaken in order to qualify for the money- back guarantee or the free extension policies.
Example #2: A CBA 12 month license begins on 2/10/20 and expires 2/10/21. An exam session extension is purchased for $169 and extends the CBA license to 6/1/21. The exam is taken on 5/25/21. BDS will review module completion from the CBA Course Completion Report from 11/25/20 (NOT from 2/10/20) to 5/25/21. Any module completed from 2/10/20 to 11/25/20 needs to be retaken in order to qualify for the money back guarantee or the free extension policies.
If you do not want to monitor module completion within a 6 month time period prior to the exam date, you may request a new data sheet (module data does not transfer over). Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org AFTER completing your order.
A free extension is available for customers who have failed the Board exam, and have completed a minimum of 70% of the CBA Learning Module Series within 6 months of the exam date. Click here for details.
