Test Preparation

Enroll > Study > Notify/Schedule

Here’s a helpful guideline of what you need to do after you enroll in the program.

Once you receive your confirmation into the certification program, you will need to purchase a set of booklets from the NALP store to help you prepare for the exam.

Program Exams are self-study; each program has its own set of booklets; these can be used for self-study, in-house training and reference resources.
