COVID-19 Resources & Updates

OACETT would like to ensure its members have access to the resources they need during this unprecedented time.  As such, we have compiled a list of essential links, updated daily, that will cover everything from economic assistance for individuals and businesses, to health-realted resources, and how companies can help the community.

OACETT Updates

Incoming Mail

Members are asked to refrain from sending mail and courier packages to the OACETT office at this time as the office is closed.  Should you need to send mail, please 
contact the recipient to make alternative arrangements.

Professional Practice Exam

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and until further notice, Examity, our online proctoring provider, has closed all their offices until further notice. Therefore, writing the PPE/IEPPE is not possible at this time. 

If your exam registration expires while Examity is closed, you will be given an extension. OACETT’s partner in delivering exam materials, Captus Press, is still operating remotely. Therefore, you can still register and study for the PPE/IEPPE.  

Exam information can be found here:

For more information, please consult our staff directory, or email us at
