Certified Cicerone® Exam Schedule

Certified Cicerone® exams are scheduled frequently around the world.

To see all currently confirmed/scheduled upcoming exams: go to the Exam Schedule. We try our best to get exams on the schedule with as much advance notice as possible. We typically get to most big cities or areas of the United States 1-2 times a year, however, we schedule exams based on demand, especially in non-US locations. 

To register for an exam: Log into your account on cicerone.org. You can find links to exams that you are suited to in the sidebar on your my account page. You must pass the Certified Beer Server Exam to be eligible to register for a Certified Cicerone Exam.

Hosting an Exam: The Cicerone Certification Program schedules Certified Cicerone® exams based on regional demand. We hold multiple exams around the world every month. We do not hold private exams. However, if you have a group of six or more individuals who would like to take the exam and have an available venue, we will work to schedule an exam for your group. We will give priority registration to your group, and then open registration to that exam to the general public at least six weeks before the exam date. If you are interested in scheduling an exam for your group please email sales@cicerone.org.
