Step one: request an Authorization to Test (ATT)

Before scheduling an exam, you must obtain an Authorization to Test (ATT) email. Please review the information in this email carefully. If any information is incorrect, or needs to be updated, please contact APICS at exams@apics.org

You have two primary payment options: with an exam credit, which is purchased on your behalf through an authorized APICS partner, or directly to APICS. To find an APICS partner, please visit our APICS Partner and Event Finder page.

  2. Navigate to the My APICS Certifications tab and click to expand Exam Authorizations and Credits.
  3. Click the link to the exam you choose to schedule, reschedule or cancel.
