Update July 17


To those of you who are interested in taking PRAC 2.0 in October, CIDQ has released a 13 question sample exam through their website. https://www.cidq.org/prac-2-0  We at QPREP, having taken this quiz, have had discussions with CIDQ to gather additional information and clarify several items that we feel are unclear both in question expectations and codes. At this time we do not feel we have sufficient content information or clarification to provide an accurate and informative course that meets the quality standard we demand and you expect from us. We could provide a course containing many speculations but feel you deserve the best and most accurate instruction for the investment you make in this step of your professional endeavors. We have all of the latest information CIDQ is willing to provide any study organization and do not feel we have enough absolute answers or clearly understood information to provide a course without speculation.


It is our hope and intention that we will be in a position to offer workshops in January of 2018. We are working to make that happen.


In the interim, we are working to develop some webinars addressing those content areas where we have sufficient information to offer a high quality learning experience. Our first webinar will be focused on the updated 16 page NCIDQ Building Codes. Please visit the CIDQ website to download the new codes. https://www.cidq.org/prac-2-0


We ask that you frequently check back with us to see our progress in having quality and accurate information ready and available for you to prepare for the PRAC 2.0 exam.


Thank you,


Donna, Phyllis, and Cheryl
