About the ATP Exam

The ATP examination features 200 multiple choice questions that test competency in the broad field of assistive technology practice.  

The four-hour exam is administered via computer at Prometric test centers around the world. The exam is delivered in English.

Accommodations are available for candidates with special needs that comply with the American Disabilities Act (ADA). Candidates with special needs must request accommodations when they submit the Certification Application. Please contact RESNA to discuss available ADA accomodations.  

The exam is preceded by a 10-minute tutorial which provides instruction on navigating through the exam. At the end of the exam, candidates will receive a preliminary Pass/Fail grade. Note: Candidates who test between July 1, 2016, and October 30, 2016, will receive their score report in late November or early December, after RESNA's contracting psychometric consultant and a group of subject matter experts has reviewed the exam's statistical performance data and determined the passing cut-off score.

For candidates who fail the exam, the score report will show the overall percentage score earned and will include diagnostic information about the candidate's performance in each of the five major knowledge domains from the Exam Content Outline.
