Upgrading Your Certification

If I have been granted a Level II work experience credit for my Associates Degree, will the credit still apply at higher levels?

Yes. After you are awarded Level II, whether you met the work experience requirement through experience alone or a combination of experience and education, you must acquire three additional years of relevant work experience before upgrading to Level III.

How can I upgrade my AET that I earned by passing the A/B exams?
Once NICET certifies you as an AET, you are no longer required to take any subsequent exams to upgrade in that general knowledge program. To upgrade, you must submit a detailed work history reflecting the required amount of work experience, one or two personal recommendations, and the application review fee.


If none of these FAQs answered your question, please e-mail NICET or search again. Questions related to your personal progress toward meeting a certification requirement must be directed to NICET by telephone. Please call 888-476-4238 or 703-548-1518.
