Allowable References for Standard Model Exams

testing

The list below identifies the references allowed into Pearson Vue testing centers for each exam. The test questions are based on the standard editions listed; therefore, candidates are strongly urged to bring these editions to the exam. Note: candidates may bring older or newer editions—instead of the editions listed—at their own risk. An NFPA Handbook will NOT be accepted as a substitute for any standard.

The references must be bound or secured in a three-ring binder with a title page. They may have highlighted text and self-adhesive index tabs or dividers, however they must be permanently attached. No other additions or modifications to the references are allowed. References with loose paper or pages and freestanding tabs (e.g., repositionable sticky notes of any kind) are not permitted into testing centers.
