Optional Plan for High-Volume Testing
The NIMS 1-Year Comprehensive Implementation Plan focuses on long-term program and performance expectations of metalworking training programs, while maximizing the ability of a training program to test against NIMS standards by establishing fixed registration and testing costs. These fixed costs are based on the expectation of the training program to see an increasing number of candidates (students/trainees) each year. This proposal will enable candidates to achieve their fullest certification potential without financial constraint.
This plan includes one year of unlimited registration fees, unlimited online theory exam fees, and waived accreditation fees (for first-time and renewal applicants) for a flat price of $5,000.
Standard Credentialing Fees
• Candidate Lifetime Registration Fee: $40.00
• NIMS Online Theory Exam - Level I: $35.00 per person
Fees for NIMS-Accredited Programs
Registration fees for NIMS-Accredited programs are the same as above, however NIMS-Accredited programs receive a 20% discount on all online theory exam fees:
Fees for Paper Exams
Programs without internet access and/or requiring paper versions of exams should contact NIMS staff for more information and pricing.
