Test Takers

If you have already purchased your exam on cedia.org you should have received an email from CEDIA with instructions about setting up a Webassessor Account and scheduling your exam through that portal. In that email you will have received a Kryterion scheduling voucher (valid for 3 months) which can be to register for an exam in either of the following two options. 

  1. Remote Online Proctoring – take the exam from the convenience of your own home or business. Learn more about this option in the Remote Proctoring information page and from the Kryterion Support page.   
  2. Local Kryterion Test Center – There are 1,000+ global test centers and you can browse to locate one near you.

If you do not pass your ESC-N exam you may retest. Please contact certification@cedia.org to pay the discounted retest fee of $125/£100 and receive another scheduling voucher.

To view and manage your certification please log into cedia.org and go to the My Education page from within your account. This will display all your certifications along with your transcript. As you take classes that are eligible for CEUs, you can add them to your transcript through the CEU Petition Form.

If you have multiple certifications, then the certification period of your ESC-N will be aligned with the others and you will not also not need to earn additional CEUs (beyond 30) for these additional certifications. 

There is currently no renewal application or fee for the ESC-N so it is just a matter of having 30 CEUs showing on your transcript. Please contact certification@cedia.org if you have any questions about your certification period or renewing your certification.
