Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Exams

The exam is included as part of your enrolment bundle (where stated).

When you are ready to book your exam, please email the NZPICS office to acquire your exam credit. The exam credit is valid for six-months and is used as payment for your Authorisation To Test (ATT). This is done on the APICS website.

The ATT allows you book and schedule your exam through the APICS website, which should then take you to the Pearson VUE website and allow you to pick a Pearson VUE-authorised test centre and then see available dates.

The ATT is valid for six-months. If you fail to book and sit your exam before your ATT expires, then your exam fee will be forfeit.

We recommend booking your exam at least one month before your intended exam date.
