THE EXAM For Students who took the ARF ICTP Course Before August 1, 2021



This applies to  you if you took or are taking  the  Initial Certification Training Program for Administrators of ARF (ICTP-ARF) between:

MARCH 2020 through JULY 2021

After completing the ICTP ARF program  prior to August 1, 2021 you must apply for a conditional  admin certificate by completing the Application for Administrator Certification   within 30 days of taking the ICTP ARF course.

If you are taking the ICTP course in July of 2021 that ends July 16, 2021 you must send in your application prior to August 16, 2021.

Include in the application the certificate issued to you by Smart Seminars.

Your conditional certificate is good for two years from the date of issue. You must complete 40 hours of CEU renewal prior to the two year expiration to be in good standing.

The Exam

After you receive your conditional certificate you will then receive an invitation from CCL DPSS  by US Mail to take the exam. Here is the invitation for students who completed the ICTP course prior to June 30, 2021.

The exam is being offered online via webcam. It is an open book exam for 90 minutes.

You must pass the exam to maintain your certificate. You can take the exam three times . After you pass the exam  your certificate will no longer be considered conditional (and I am guessing they will send you a new one).

Smart Seminars offer students over 200 practice questions and study guides to help you study and pass the exam. Practice questions are included in the For more information please review these links.
