Retest Q&A

Frequently Asked Questions About Retaking Certification Exams

In an effort to make our website more accessible, we are including a list of frequently asked questions surrounding the exam retesting process.  

Question 1:
What is the reduced fee to retake an exam?
Answer:
The reduced fee is $100 to retest in conjunction with a live seminar and is $150 to retest at an remote testing center, except for with the CMVP, for which the retest fee is $200.
 
Question 2:
If I took the live version of the exam at a seminar, does that mean that I have to retest at a seminar, or is it possible for me to retest at an remote testing center instead?
Answer:
You may choose to retake the exam at either a live seminar or at an remote testing center.
 
Question 3:
Are all exams available at the remote testing center? Where are remote testing centers located?
Answer:
All exams can be taken at remote testing centers. Link to the locations available: www.aeecenter.org/certifiormap
Note: you must complete and submit the retesting application to the certification program manager prior to retest.
 
Question 4:
Do I need to retake the seminar before retaking the exam?
Answer:
No. As long as you complete the retest within three years of completing the seminar, you do not need to retake the seminar.
 
Question 5:
If I take another preparatory seminar before retaking the exam, is that seminar free of charge? Is a discount available?
Answer:
A preparatory seminar is not required before taking the exam. If you would like to retake a seminar, contact AEE Energy Seminars to qualify for a discount. Email Terese Lavallee at terese@aeecenter.org.
 
Question 6:
Do I need to resubmit my application before retaking the exam?
Answer:
Exam applications are kept on file for a period of three years. As long as you retest within that three-year period, the only form that needs to be submitted is your retesting form.
 
Question 7:
How many times can I retake the exam?
Answer:
There is no limit to the number of times that you can retake the exam. The certification board will only see your final, passing, score. 
 
Question 8:
Do I have to wait a certain period of time before retaking the exam?
Answer:
You have to wait a minimum of 60 days prior to retaking the exam. You can schedule your exam as soon as you receive your exam score letter, but it must be a minimum of 60 days from your previous exam date.
 
Question 9:
How do I access the retesting form on the AEE website?
Answer:
The retesting form can be accessed by logging into your AEE account. You can access your account at https://www.aeecenter.org/custom/certifications/retest.cfm.
