"If someone is on the fence about getting their CAMT, think about this scenario: A two-ton heat pump runs about $850. If a technician knows how to troubleshoot a compressor correctly (which they teach in CAMT), then they just saved the cost of the entire CAMT program itself by knowing what to look for."
- Ray McKeand, CAMT, CAPS


The format of all NAAEI credential exams has changed. All NAAEI exams are now proctored. This new policy means that credential candidates must take their exams either onsite at a SEFAA testing facility with a trained and qualified affiliate proctor, or on their own computers via live online proctoring (LOP).

In addition, both the CAM and CAPS programs now feature a one-part exam. Because of this change, all current CAM and CAPS candidates who need to take or retake their exams have been issued a new exam eligibility code to direct them to the new version of the exam. Any previously generated CAM or CAPS code will no longer work to schedule an exam. Please contact SEFAA to receive new codes for CAM and CAPS exams. The new exam codes will be linked on the dashboard to the CAM Comprehensive Exam or the CAPS Comprehensive Exam.

The eligibility codes for the NALP, CAMT, CAS, and IROP exams have not changed; however, candidates for these credentials must now log onto the Castle scheduling site to schedule their exams.

Advance notice is not required to schedule exams being taken via LOP.  Candidates who are rescheduling their canceled or failed exams will follow the same scheduling instructions. Retake and reschedule fees have increased, they are as follows:

Fees to retake a failed exam are as follows:

  • CAM and CAPS -- $100
  • CAS, IROP -- $60
  • CAMT -- $55
  • CALP -- $50
  • Micro-credentials -- $50

These fees will be charged to the candidate upon login to the scheduling site. The seven-day waiting period between exam retakes remains in effect.
