Important Information About ACI Exams

  • This is a difficult exam to pass. Prior study and practice of the performance tests are required. Study manual is included in the registration fee, but and will be sent when payment is received in the TCA office.

  • Examinee needs to be registered 2 weeks prior to the exam date. This provides the minimum time necessary for study materials to be shipped to the examinee in time for study prior to the exam, and allows us to arrange for adequate class space and test proctors. Walk-ins to the test site will not be allowed (even for retakes) – all students must register and pay in advance.

  • Substitutions allowed w/prior permission from TCA office. If examinee is unable to attend no refund will be issued if TCA has not been contacted by email 1 week prior to exam day. Upon prior notification of a cancellation examinee can be placed in the next available class, or a refund will be issued. If an examinee does not attend the second exam session, a refund (less $125) will be issued and the examinee will have to re-register for a future exam session.
