Applicants for Third Party Examiners may be come certified by meeting the requirements of a Certified Examiner by reading and complying with Administrative Rule R708-21.

Once the tester has submitted this information, the division has 60 days to review all the information for accuracy and provide any feedback for changes if necessary. The tester must then fix any problems and submit the changes to the division for final approval.
