    Certification Requirements:

    ACI will grant certification only to those applicants who meet both of the following requirements:

    1. A passing grade on the ACI written examination, and

    2. Successful completion of the ACI performance examination.

    The one-hour written examination is closed-book and consists of approximately 40 multiple-choice questions. There are at least eight questions on each of the practices and test methods. To pass the written examination, both of the following conditions must be met:

    1. At least 60% correct for each of the required practices and test methods, and

    2. A minimum score of 70% overall.

    The performance examination is also closed-book and requires actual demonstration of the required practices and test methods. The examinee is judged on his/her ability to correctly perform all of the required steps for each procedure. Recertification is necessary every five years* and requires successful completion of both the written and performance examinations.
