The standard process is to call the company that distributed the test to your address at least two days before the exam. Call and ask to speak with someone in the training department. This person should be able to redirect you to the customer service department of the company that distributed the exam.
You may be wondering why you should even bother calling the company in the first place. It’s not like it’s going to cost you anything. The reason you should call is because you want to make sure that you have all of your materials prior to the examination. Having all of your materials prior to the exam is very important. Your materials need to be prepared for the questions that you will face on the actual exam.
After you call and get the test number, you need to make sure you have enough test materials with you to take the actual exam. Again, this is why you called in the first place. The company that distributed the test may have sent you a copy, or you may have been given a copy. Either way, you will need to bring the materials with you to take the test.
Once you have the materials with you, then you need to go talk to one of the nurse practitioners in your office. This person will ask you a few general questions that they think you may have. Usually, nurse practitioners are going to ask you about your demographics. They are going to ask if you smoke, how long you have been a smoker, and what you like to do for fun. These are general demographic questions that they use to find out more about you before they get into the actual examination.
After the nurse practitioner has finished your personal information and asked you these questions, they will proceed to take an actual test on the AIT website. You will see a number on your screen that corresponds to the number that the nurse practitioner marked on your chart. This number is going to be important because it will give you the ability to track your progress throughout the testing process. You can track your time and progress in different sections of the test.
When the test is over, you will have to click on a link that takes you to a results page. Here, you will find out the score that the nurse practitioner calculated for you on each section of the test. You should also find out whether or not you passed the test, and if so, which section you failed in. If you did not pass the test, you can try again until you are happy with your scores.
At this point, it is time for you to contact customer service to report your scores. When you call the customer service number, you will be told your score and given instructions on how to obtain the written report. You will need to provide the name of the testing company, your name, and your address. You may even have to provide social security numbers. However, you will be able to get your score, and the written report, within 24 hours.
