Candidates who wish to learn more about what kind of questions appear on the HIV Credentialing Exam may register for Practice Tests for the HIV Specialist™ or HIV Pharmacist™ Exams.  The Practice Tests use questions that have previously appeared on the HIV Credentialing Exams, but have been retired due to age.

Access to the Practice Tests may be purchased using the link below.  Each exam is $50.  Purchase or completion of the Practice Tests is not required to earn an Academy credential.  These tests are provided for educational and informational purposes only.

The Practice Tests do…

  • Consist of 25 retired questions from the HIV Credentialing Exams
  • Display the correct answers (at the time the question was administered)
  • Provide short explanations for each question

The Practice Tests DO NOT…

  • Provide diagnostic level feedback or assess current knowledge
  • Indicate preparedness for the HIV Credentialing Exam
  • Guarantee a passing score on the HIV Credentialing Exam
  • Necessarily reflect current practice standards as only retired questions are used.
  • Award CME, CPE, MOC, or other continuing education credits
  • Use the same software as the HIV Credentialing Exam.
