Retake Policy

The Academy allows for one complimentary retake of the HIV Credentialing Exam if there is another testing period available during the same testing cycle.  Candidates who do not earn a passing score during the August/September testing period will be automatically re-registered, without charge, for the November/December testing period.

Candidates who only take the exam during the November/December testing period are not eligible for a complementary retake.
