NICET Testing with Learning Disabilities

One of our Fire Alarms Online Facebook Group members recently asked recently if NICET provides any accommodations for persons with learning disabilities seeking certification.  After contacting NICET's testing division directly, I found that this is in fact a service they provide under Policy #19.

NICET Testing with Learning DisabilitiesIn order for an applicant to request special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), he or she must submit a determination document from their medical practitioner stating their past and present diagnosis.  In addition to this step, the applicant must also complete a request for special testing accommodations form with a NICET Technician application for review (Download Link Below).  From there, NICET will set the applicant's ADA status and the examination is scheduled accordingly.

NICET claims that if the applicant requires double time, half time, a reader, a separate testing room, etc; they will make arrangements as needed.

Below we have included a download link for the NICET's ADA form that must be completed and faxed to NICET's testing division (703-682-2756) prior to scheduling your examination with a Pearson VUE testing facility.
