I think I passed

I think I passed the test, but I'm not 100% sure.

The first section consisted of five quotes from Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised. I had to find the page each quote was on, and only had a total of 30 minutes in which to do it. It only took me four minutes. When I handed it back in, the lady who was monitoring the test told me "You sure know your way around that book..."

The remaining four sections of the test were multiple choice, with a total of 300 questions. A passing grade is 85 on each section. I think I passed all four, although that 85% requirement is tough enough that I may not have passed one or two. Fortunately, if I only fail one or two sections, I can retake just those, instead of the whole test.

I won't find out for a few weeks, most likely. The NAP national convention is in two weeks, and the folks who grade the test are busy preparing for the convention. They've got 60 days to get the results back to me.

Should I pass that, I'll be a Registered Parliamentarian. That and $1.50 will get me a cup of coffee, and the ability (by taking a professional qualification course) to earn the designation of Professional Registered Parliamentarian. At that point, I can hang out a shingle and actually do it for money, and my clients would know that I'd met some pretty stringent qualifications.
