The IA offers computer-based certification exams at testing centers across North America, as well as paper and pencil exams at a select number of events. In 2020, a series of exam sessions sponsored by SiteOne Landscape Supply, will be held during a two-week period from Dec. 7-18.

Computer-Based Testing

KTN testing centers, closed temporarily due to COVID-19, have begun to reopen with reduced capacity or testing schedules in order to comply with local, state and national health guidelines. A list of currently open centers can be found on the test-center-locator page, keeping in mind that the return to full testing will be gradual. You can find a daily, updated list of closed test centers here.

Reduce time out of the office by taking the exam on your schedule at a location near you. IA certification exams are offered at hundreds of testing centers across North America and internationally throughout the year. Certification candidates select the exam date, time and location that works best for them and receive preliminary results immediately after completing the exam.

Registering for a computer-based test is a two-step process that begins with submitting a registration form. Once your registration is approved, you will receive an email with instructions and credentials to schedule your exam date, time and location.
