Work Element Programs

NICET ended the Work Element (WE) exam(s) December 31, 2017. Exams passed in the work element format are still valid towards certification. Please note: We are not able to provide score reports for work element examinations. To meet higher level exam requirements in the future, candidates must pass the appropriate exam/s, if available, in the Standard Model/CBT format. Testing is no longer available for some programs.
