Join more than 14,000 Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) and bring added value to your grower customers by taking the International Certified Crop Adviser (ICCA) exam. The next exam will be administered on Feb. 7, 2020. 

The Certified Crop Adviser Program was established in 1991 and has become the standard by which crop advisers are measured. In addition to providing professionals with a code of ethics to follow, the continuing education requirement of certification ensures advisers keep up with constantly evolving production practices.

To become a Certified Crop Adviser, you must pass two comprehensive exams that may both be written on the same day at the same location. The International exam is written by all CCAs in North America. Please visit the links below for more information about regional exams from your provincial/regional CCA board.
