AMCA certifications are valid for a 2 year period.
CTE students can take the test after completion of their classroom hours. This means they can take the AMCA national certification exam prior to their 18th birthday and graduating high school.
CTE students have the option of paying only $30.00 for any AMCA exam. Once the student has passed the AMCA National exam, an activation form for the balance will be emailed to the student. Once the activation fee is paid the certification is active.
