What's included when I register? Each registration includes a full-day of training and the exam, about 8-hours total. When you register, we'll mail you the required study and testing materials (and the physical address of the testing location) within a few business days. And, since you've done all the studying and hard work,  we'll also take care of lunch on the day of your class!
How long is the exam? And, what do I need to get to pass? The exam consists of 90 questions, and typically takes anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours. You must receive a 75% score or better to pass.

When will I know the results of my exam?

Where's my certificate?

All completed exams are mailed directly to the NRA Education Foundation in Chicago for authentication and grading. If you passed the exam, your results can be accessed on the ServSafe website by creating a username and login.

As of May 1, 2015, ServSafe and VRLTA will no longer be mailing paper Certificates. By signing in on the ServSafe website, you will be able to check your results and print your eCertificate. ServSafe eCert FAQs
Do I need to take the Class in order to take the Exam? Nope. If you've done the studying at home and feel you can pass the test without an in-class session, you're more than welcome to just take the test. However, the test must be taken with an NRA-certified proctor.
So, how can I take just the Exam? And what does it cost? The best way to take just the exam is to register for one of our scheduled classes and select the Exam Only rate. This way we can ensure we have a proctor lined up to administer your exam. Just register online for the date you want, remember to use the Exam Only option, and will send you the information you need to know. It's only $75 to take the exam; but study materials and lunch are not included with this registration.
Am I missing anything? Not that we can think of. But if you have another question, just send us a note.
