Provisional Certification General FAQ’s

Q. What is Provisional Certification?

A. Provisional Certification is attained when students choose to take the CRCST exam before they have completed their 400 hours of hands-on experience. It is not an exemption from the hands-on experience requirement. Students who attain provisional certification have 6 months to complete their hands-on experience component and submit proof of that to IAHCSMM Headquarters. If that is not completed in 6 months, the certification is revoked and the student must retake the certification exam.
