Authorization-to-Test (ATT)

Upon eligibility approval, AFP will send you an Authorization-to-Test (ATT) via email, which will give you the information you need to schedule your appointment to test. If you do not receive your ATT within four weeks after submitting your application materials, please contact 301-907-2862 or certification@afponline.org.

Please note: If you are registering for a future window, you will not receive your ATT until after the current window has ended.

Scheduling Your Examination Appointment

Once registered, the candidate must either schedule an appointment to take the exam or request that the registration be transferred or deferred to the next testing window.

Failure to schedule an appointment during your approved testing window will result in forfeiting your exam fee. In order to take the exam in another window, you will be required to complete a re-examination registration form and pay the $300 re-exam fee.

Carefully check your ATT. Your name, as it appears on your identification, MUST match the name the test center has on file. (Please see the ID requirements section for a list of exceptions.). If any information is incorrect, contact AFP prior to making your appointment to test.

Appointments to test can be made by calling Pearson Vue’s registration center at 866-837-8287 or online at www.pearsonvue.com/afp. You may make an appointment to test at any of Pearson Vue’s 5,000 testing centers for any available date and time during your approved testing window. For the best availability, candidates should make their appointment immediately after receiving their ATT, as test center seats can fill quickly.
