AIRS exams are administered online so you must bring your own laptop or make arrangements with your agency to provide one. Seating is limited to 20 registered applicants. There is no additional TAIRS Testing Fee! Please be aware that registration for your local Affiliate Training is not the same as registration for the AIRS Certification exam.

All certification exam applications, supporting documentation and appropriate exam fees must be mailed to the AIRS National Office in Fairfax, Virginia, and must arrive 30 days prior to the exam. DO NOT send your application for Certification with your conference registration. If an application and payment are mailed to an address other than the AIRS National Office in Fairfax, Virginia, the application will not be processed, and the applicant will be unable to sit the exam.
