Testing Accommodations

RESNA and its testing agency, Prometric, comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (42 USCG Section 12101, et. seq.), and with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2000e, et. seq.). RESNA uses the guidelines put forth in the documents listed above to address similar requests made by candidates outside the U.S. Any individual who has a physical or cognitive impairment or limitation that prevents him/her from taking the exam under standard testing conditions may request special testing accommodations. The types of accommodations that may be provided include a person to read and/or mark the answer sheet, extended testing time, and/or a separate testing room.
A request for testing accommodations must be submitted to RESNA after submitting your exam fee. However, candidates cannot schedule their exam until the testing accommodation request has been reviewed and approved. Testing accommodations approved by RESNA will be transmitted to Prometric along with your testing authorization.
Testing accommodations requests must include a separate formal letter describing each of the following:
  • Candidate’s disability or special need
  • Adaptations the candidate is requesting
  • Documentation from a physician or other appropriate diagnostic authority concerning the disability and special needs
Documentation from a physician or appropriate authority (e.g., psychologist, vocational specialist, etc.) is required to approve the candidate’s testing accommodation request. After reviewing requests, RESNA will confirm your request. RESNA makes every effort to assist with testing accommodation, except when it may alter the exam or results, or if it causes an undue burden on the testing center. There is no additional charge for testing accommodations.
