How long does NICET keep my test history?
Five years after your last test, if you have not achieved certification, NICET will delete your test history. If you achieve a certification, then all work elements pertaining to that certification remain in your records as long as that certification is in active status. If your certification has expired, you have up to three years from your expiration date to reinstate it; until the end of this three-year period, NICET will maintain your testing records. Refer to NICET Policy 26.

What is an Official Personal Transcript?
An official Personal Transcript lists every work element (associated with a field of certification) that has been tested and passed on a NICET exam, passed through crossover credit, or passed by non-NICET testing. The transcript shows the work element identification number and the date the element was credited to your test history.

How can I find out who is certified in my state?
You can contact NICET for general statistics about the numbers of certified individuals.

Can I order standards from NICET?
No. You must contact the standards' publishers. Most standards-issuing organizations have websites; a quick Internet search should provide you with contact information.

How can I report someone who is misrepresenting him/her self or fraudulently claiming NICET certification?
