Basis for the Test
The knowledge base for competency is measured by the NARM Written Examination. All candidates, regardless of route of application or verification of skills, must pass the NARM Written Examination.
The NARM Job Analysis determines the knowledge and skills that are tested for certification. All of the knowledge and skills must first be verified through an educational process, and must be taught and evaluated by an instructor or preceptor. The testing process serves as a second verification of the acquisition of knowledge and skills, providing an evaluation through a performance assessment and a written exam.
