The IA offers computer-based certification exams at testing centers across North America, as well as paper/pencil exams at the annual Irrigation Show and Education Conference and a select number of events.

Computer-Based Testing

UPDATE: Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, testing centers around the world have closed temporarily through May 31, 2020. Candidates may reschedule their exams for a convenient date and time on June 1, 2020, or beyond, unless temporary closures are extended past that date.

Reduce time out of the office by taking the exam on your schedule at a location near you. IA certification exams are offered at hundreds of testing centers across North America and internationally throughout the year. Certification candidates select the exam date, time and location that works best for them and receive preliminary results immediately after completing the exam.

Registering for a computer-based test is a two-step process that begins with submitting a registration form. Once your registration is approved, you will receive an email with instructions and credentials to schedule your exam date, time and location.
