Every NARI Certification candidate must complete and pass an examination corresponding to their chosen certification.
Examinations are overseen by an examination proctor and may be completed on paper or online depending on the capabilities of the proctor location and candidate preference.
Professionals whose companies belong to a local chapter can expect to have their exam proctored by someone at their local chapter.
Professionals whose companies are not within chapter boundaries will take their exam at a local venue which offers exam proctoring, such as a library or community college. Please note the venue may charge a nominal fee to proctor your exam.
All examination logistics will be arranged by NARI Certification Staff.
Annual exam periods are listed in ranges but specific days will be selected based on both the certification candidate's preference and the availability of the proctor.
Please remember that a NARI Certification staff member will reach out to you as the examination period approaches to confirm that you wish to test during the upcoming period and to arrange examination logistics.
