Overview

Accredited Practical Examiners are authorized to offer the NWSA practical exam at approved NWSA Practical Exam Sites. Scheduling of such tests is done through the Practical Exam Test Site Coordinator responsible for each site.

Practical Examiner accreditation is good for five years. Once accredited, you will receive a Practical Examiner packet with the documentation necessary to conduct NWSA practical exams. You will also receive an official NWSA accreditation card listing the practical exam for which you are accredited and are eligible to administer exams.
