How is the Dementia Care Expert Examination done?

Dementia Care Expert Examination is done in two level for a full certification, DCE-1 and DCE-2. DCE-1 is administered through a multiple-choice type of examination for all 3 categories (basic, practice and management). Each category has 50 questions. (Because of the this year’s DCE-1 is done online.)

DCE-2 is a different type of exam as examinees will be asked to answer through an essay a dementia care-related question prior to the exact day of an actual oral presentation/discussion day where a panel of experts will be present to grade the examinees.
