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.

After purchasing your exam, you will navigate to your name in the upper-right hand corner > Dashboard > My Tests > Access Exams > and following the instructions from there.
When you purchase the exam, you will choose in-person or virtual proctoring. Then you will schedule your own exam. If you choose "in-person" proctoring, you will schedule your exam date/time with that proctor and then take the exam in the same room as them. If you choose "virtual" proctoring, you will schedule the exam directly with ProctorU by selecting your name in the upper-right corner > Dashboard > My Tests > Access Exams > and following the instructions from there.
SPECIAL OFFER! Free Virtual Proctoring for NCWM Members!
- NCWM Member: $0
- Non-Member: $120/per exam
Users are allowed two attempts to pass the exam with each purchase. Upon a second failure, a “cooling off” period will require the applicant to wait at least 30 days before re-purchasing and attempting to take the exam again.
