AEST is an exam credit-based system.  Exam credits are $1 each, providing you the flexibility to test initial exams, retakes, and all levels of certification exams. You can purchase exam credits for your school’s account any time before your scheduled exam.  AEST charges for exams by deducting credits from the school’s account when the proctor ‘seats’ the student on exam day.  This method prevents issues regarding refunds and no-shows.  Credits do not expire and can be purchased at any time. Printable exam quotes are provided by logging into your account and using the “price estimator” feature.

Exam credits may be purchased using three payment options: invoice, purchase order, or credit card.  Exam credits are available for immediate use regardless of the payment option selected.  Invoices will be generated for “invoice” and “purchase order” options. Invoices are sent electronically to the email address specified during the purchasing process and allow payments by check or credit card. Receipts for exam credit purchases are provided electronically.
