Professional Certification Exams


Professional certifications are offered in many industries to demonstrate competence in particular fields of expertise.  Certification may be a means of qualifying an individual for employment or higher pay grade within a profession.  The NCWM Professional Certification Program provides confidence that an individual has a strong understanding of U.S. weights and measures standards as adopted by NCWM and published in  Handbooks 44, 130, and 133 .

Professional Certification is for a period of 5 years from the date that an applicant successfully completes an exam.  Certification is available to members and non-members in the private sector and in government positions.  Click here for reference materials that may be used during testing.
