Policy 37: Test Composition and Time Limits

(Implemented September 2008)

NICET strives to provide fair and equal opportunities for all examinees to demonstrate their knowledge and skill during the certification examination process, within reasonable time constraints. The exact technical composition, configuration and time limits of each assessment instrument are determined by selected Subject Matter Experts, representing major stakeholders from the corresponding specialty area, in accordance with the established Practice Analysis and Test Blueprint.

NICET may, at its sole discretion, allow examinees to sit for multiple assessments during a single time period, provided all assessments are directly related to the same specialty area.
