Testing Times: When registering online with myASE, you also need to schedule your own appointment time. With myASE, you can choose test appointments across several weeks of test times to best suit your busy lifestyle. Schedule your tests as early as possible, as appointment times fill up quickly. If you register by telephone, you can register and schedule your tests at the same time.
Tests Offered: All Certification and Recertification tests

Fees

You only pay the registration fee once for each two-month testing window in which you register for tests.
 
  • Registration Fee: $36 per person for any combination of tests
  • Certification Tests (except L1 and L2): $33 each
  • Advanced Level Certification Tests (L1 and L2): $66 each
  • Recertification Tests: same cost as the corresponding Certification Tests ($33 each, except for L1 and L2, which are $66 each); Recertification Test fees cap out at $99, regardless of the number of tests you take. The $99 cap only limits the amount you pay for recertification tests, not the number you may take.

Test Times

* Note that ASE Certification tests usually include ten additional research questions that are not counted for score. You will not be told which questions these are, so you should answer every question. No research questions are added to Recertification Tests. You are only eligible to take the Recertification Test when you have previously passed the corresponding initial Certification Test.
