Scheduling Your Exam

On your application, you will select an exam period window (Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall) from the schedule below. 

Note: The ATP exam closed October 31, 2016, and will reopen on March 14, 2017.  

During the closure, RESNA will analyze the results of the first round of testing (July through October) that followed the launch of the updated exam on July 1.  During this timeframe, RESNA will also determine the passing cut-off score for the updated exam.

RESNA will begin accepting applications for 2017 ATP testing beginning January 1.

If RESNA determines that you have satisfied the exam eligibility requirements, then you will receive an Authorization-to-Test (ATT) notice via email. (If you do not receive your ATT within 3 weeks of submitting your application materials, then please contact RESNA.) The ATT will provide you with instructions for contacting Prometric to schedule your exam appointment at one of Prometric's computer-based testing centers. You will choose a test center, and then you'll select an available appointment date within your chosen exam period window.

Please schedule your exam as far in advance as possible to secure an appointment date before your exam period closes.

If you must reschedule your exam, please refer to the Candidate Information Bulletin for procedures and fees.
