IMPORTANT CHANGES TO API ICP EXAMS

There will no longer be one global exam day, but a testing window. Please view the schedule below for exam dates and deadlines.

Starting in March 2014, API will change the examination delivery method from paper-and-pencil to computer-based-testing (CBT).

Tests will be offered over a 10-day testing window. This means each applicant will have a choice of when or where they want to test within a given window. Tests will be available at any Prometric computer testing center around the world. Currently Prometric features about 650 computer testing centers. Please note that all computer testing centers have a limited capacity, anywhere between 5 and 40 seats. The schedule for 2016 and 2017 exams is as follows:

Once API reviews and approves your application submitted in the online portal, you will receive an exam authorization letter, containing your exam eligibility ID. (Please note: API will not be accepting any paper applications in 2014).

As soon as you receive your eligibility ID, you will have to log in to the Prometric website (http://www.prometric.com/apiexams) and schedule yourself to take the exam at the time and location of your choice. API staff will no longer schedule your exam for you. You can preview the available testing locations by going to http://www.prometric.com/apiexams and clicking on “locate a test center”.

Important: Scheduling at Prometric locations is on a first come-first serve basis; and you will be competing for your test spot with other API applicants as well as with other organizations’ applicants. To ensure that you obtain an exam seat of your preference, please schedule your exam immediately upon receiving your eligibility ID. Additional information and new policies regarding rescheduling the test at the Prometric computer center will be published soon.

Every API program will now be featuring examinations 2 or 3 times per year, at equal intervals. Please note that API 510 and 570 will no longer be administered on the same day.

You will not need to bring anything to any examination, other than your government issued picture ID and admission letter. When codebooks are necessary for an exam, those will be displayed on your monitors. You will also have access to a calculator and scrap paper for calculations.

Before the start of any exam a brief tutorial will be presented on how to take a computer based test.

All Prometric testing centers feature specific security procedures. Preview an exam at a Prometric computer center by viewing this video: http://vimeo.com/74953443

Please note that there are new fees for ICP certification programs that will take effect on January 1, 2014. For more information, visit: http://www.api.org/certification-programs/individual-certification-program-icp/exam-dates
