News from the Academy of Certified Archivists
The Academy of Certified Archivists (ACA) is making the certification exam more affordable by offering a reduced application fee as part of an early bird special!
Register for the exam before February 15 and receive half-off regular registration. The rate increases to the standard fee of $50 after February 15.
The early bird deadline also lowers the threshold for selecting pick-your-site locations! Instead of requiring 5 test takers per site, the ACA will only require 3 during the early bird period. This change makes it easier for many candidates to have an exam site in a more convenient and affordable location. But, like the test application fee, the required number of test participants will increase to the standard number of 5 after the early bird period ends.
This year’s Certified Archivist exam will be held August 3rd. The predetermined locations are: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
