Apply Online (You must log in, join NAMSS, or create an account before you begin an application. If you apply using another person's account, you will not be registered to take the test.)
After an application for a computer-based exam is approved, a Notice to Schedule (NTS) will be sent via e-mail. The NTS will include the scheduling Web link, your username, and your password. When you access the online scheduling system with your username and password, you will be able to choose an exam site, date and time from the list of available sites. Please note that appointment times and site locations are on a first-come, first-served basis, and may vary in availability with each exam window.
Upon completion of the online application, you may opt to send in a check. Application payments must be postmarked by the application deadline. Incomplete applications and applications received after the postmark deadline may be subject to additional fees or review.
