Examinee ID Policy

If the examinee is taking the certification exam in a test center:

  1. In several global locations, TMI exams are delivered in ExamStrong™ test centers. These centers are either part of the growing ExamStrong™ global test-center network, or may have been specially approved exclusively for use of individuals, who have been sponsored by organizations and institutions.
  2. It is important to reach the test center at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time of start of examination. This will give the examinee an adequate amount of time to complete the necessary sign-in procedures.
  3. The examinee must be prepared to show two valid forms of ID from the list below, one primary with photo & signature, and one secondary with signature. Both IDs need to be original and current (not expired).
  4. The examinees arriving more than 15 minutes late for the examination may be refused admission, and the certification exam fees may be forfeited.
  5. No personal items should be taken to the testing room. This includes all kinds of bags, books not authorized by TMI, notes, phones, pagers, watches, and wallets.
