Changes to Level 2 and 3 Testing

The ICAPGen testing committee is currently updating and restructuring the Level 2 and Level 3 exams. These changes will necessitate a major update to the “Guide to Applying for an Accredited Genealogist Credential.” Please refer to the online version as it will contain the most up to date information. The online version will also be undergoing changes so please refer back often. Until further notice the PDF version of the guide is not up to date.

Changes in procedures.

Effective 1 October 2017 there are four dates per quarter scheduled for testing activities. See “Testing Dates and Deadlines for details.

Level 1 Questionnaire is self assessing. The last item on the questionnaire explains how to create a personal code that is needed on the “Contact Information Form” to prove that the questionnaire was taken and passed. Be sure to make a record of that code. The easiest way to record it is to mark the box at the end of the questionnaire to have your responses emailed to you.

Clarification to requirements

The starting person of the four-generation project must be born in or before 1900 and married with children.


Four full four-generation reports were added to the samples page.
