Policy 19: Accommodations for Examinees with Special Needs

Applicants with a disability as defined in Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act who may be placed at a disadvantage when taking a NICET certification examination may request a testing accommodation by attaching the NICET ADA/Special Needs Accommodations Request Form or other appropriate correspondence/documentation to their application for an examination. Each request will be evaluated individually and every effort will be made to offer reasonable accommodations to qualifying applicants. There will be no additional charges to qualifying applicants for these accommodations.

Applicants who cannot take an examination on a NICET-scheduled test date because of religious restrictions may request a rescheduling accommodation by attaching an explanatory letter to their application for an examination. NICET will contact the applicant to arrange a mutually suitable accommodation.
