Please note that all candidates testing at their assigned military facility must submit a letter to the ABGD office from their Commanding Officer (CO), on Command letterhead, verifying that the CO will accept receipt of the examination and assign a Testing Control Officer (TCO) to administer, maintain security, and return the completed exam to the ABGD according to the rules and procedures included in the examination packet. Upon receipt, the ABGD office will fax an "Exam Administrator Agreement" to be signed by both the CO and TCO and returned to the ABGD. The Commanding Officer and TCO will be the points of contact for any inquiry regarding the status of the written board examination. Commanding Officers must include in the letter their office phone number, fax number, email address of both the CO and TCO, and a shipping address for receipt of the testing materials. Copying of exam books or test questions is strictly prohibited and is a violation of policies established by the ABGD.

CANDIDATES WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO TEST WITHOUT THE COMMANDING OFFICER'S LETTER AND BOTH THE CO/TCO'S EXAM ADMINISTRATOR AGREEMENT ON FILE
