We recommend studying for at least 45 days prior to the exam.
The exam is written based on two documents- the Plant Technical Reference Manual (PTRM) and the Code of Practice (Model Code). Both of these can be found on our website or by emailing Al Lear at [email protected] .
The exam is challenging, so we recommend you come prepared! You will need access to Zoom, a working microphone and webcam, stable internet, and a quiet place to take the test. The exam consists of 135 multiple choice questions, which you will have up to 3 hours to complete. You are encouraged to bring a non-phone calculator. You may also bring blank scratch paper to work on, and a writing utensil. Please have a photo ID available to confirm identification.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email. Please forward that email to Al Lear at [email protected] with your desired test date and time block. Exams are offered every month on the second Thursday at 1 PM Eastern. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from Al Lear with further instruction to access the exam.
