Don't Miss These Important Application Steps for Students


Provide them with your
organization ID to link their
application to your school.

If your school pays on behalf of
your students, make a bulk pur-
chase and provide your students
a coupon code.


3. Prepare students for the certification exam.

Share links to the resources below with your students.




Must-have Tools for the Certification Exam


Direct your students to AMT's
practice exams* to help ease test
anxiety and boost confidence.

Students can use the exam
content outline as a checklist of
the material that will be covered
on the test and work their way
through topics as they study.

Encourage students who need
extra support to take a review
course.


* Bulk purchasing is available if you want to purchase exams for your students.




4. Have your students schedule their exam.

Direct students to the AMT website to schedule their exam at a Pearson VUE testing center.

Where to Test
Students can take the exam at your school if
it is a Pearson VUE site. Otherwise, students
can take the exam at one of the hundreds of
Pearson VUE testing center locations across
the country by scheduling their exam at their
convenience.
Don't Forget
Students must receive a confirmation from
AMT that they are cleared to take the exam.
They will receive an email, and they can
check their status on My AMT Portal at any
time. Students can test before they complete
their externship.



5. Track students progress with powerful reporting.

Access Reporting Tools
AMT provides easy access to an array of
reporting tools when you log into My
AMT Portal as an authorized school
representative.
Benefits
Keep track of student progress toward certi-
fication and the uptake of resources like the
practice exams. Target your support toward
those who need it most.



Tracking Ideas for Program Directors


Monitor student application
status, practice exam results and
review course registration with
AMT's detailed reporting tools.

Use practice exam results to
identify student knowledge gaps
and target improvements in your
curriculum.

See pass/fail rates and compare
them to national benchmarks.


6. Send AMT your students' official transcripts after graduation.

This final step in the process ensures your students complete the certification requirements and
officially launch their careers.

pleting their program. You can begin preparing your students for certification from day one by helping them see
