How to buy: Available as a One Test Pass only and purchased in the Testing Center for a candidate account.
How to earn: Instructor must have the candidate role added to their existing NIMS account by NIMS staff to take the test and earn the credential. A proctor must be assigned and present as well, just like any other NIMS theory test. At this time there is no performance portion to complete.
Audience: Instructors or other evaluators who would like to streamline the inspection process for NIMS performance projects at their school.
