2.   Can I get my test results via email or via phone?

Test results are not released via email or phone. This can present security risks due to inaccurate email addresses, unsecure e-mail transmissions or identity fraud.

4.    Why can’t I see the questions I missed? How do I know what to study if you won’t tell me what I got wrong?

We wish we could show everyone the questions they missed, but we can’t. Each test question is written and approved by a panel of industry experts and then validated. If we publicly released the questions for study purposes, anyone could memorize the answers, and the questions couldn’t be used in future testing. Writing entirely new questions each time the tests are given would be costly and would result in poorer quality, less-fair exams. Keeping the test questions secure allows us to keep costs down and maintain fairness of the tests.

5.    If I fail the test, can I take it again?

Technicians unsuccessful in achieving a passing score on the Registered and Certification tests have the ability to re-test one time for a reduced fee.  To be eligible for the reduced fee, the test must be retaken within 90-days of the original test date.  It is required that the technician also complete the required sign-off sheets before attempting a retest.
