These initials CPE and CCE indicate the electrologist has satisfied a board of examiners and is a member in good standing.

The FCEA Exam

The CPE theoretical examination component consists of 100 multiple-choice questions covering all subjects pertaining to the field of electrolysis. To ensure the integrity of the exam and to make certain no two exams are the same, the exam is computer generated from a database of a possible 401 questions. These questions test the knowledge of all challenging the exam and require a pass mark of 65%.
