To attain a Certificate, you must:Attend 12 hours of GA-authorized training and pass the exam after completing the training.
Training Delivery and Instructional Qualifications:The Training Manual and asynchronous training were developed by two educational instructors, Maruja Torres-Antonini, PhD, and Matthew Sweirtz, MS, NCIDQ. The PCRA/ICRA Certificate Program is overseen by the Green Advantage National Healthcare Construction Credentialing Board.

The asynchronous training is divided into 16 modules. A section of the Training Manual will be read to you and illustrations will be reviewed as a part of each module. A few questions are at the end of each module. Once the questions are answered correctly, you will advance to the next module. The training can be taken at your own pace. For example, you can take the training in one day or one module a day for 16 days.
Exam administration/length/format:Following completion of training, PCRA/ICRA exams are administered online through remote live proctoring after a registrant completes training. A link is sent to schedule exams. To avoid a $50 rescheduling fee, exam rescheduling should be done at least 48 hours in advance.

Alternatively, by request, proctored paper/pencil exams can also be administered to groups of 5 or greater candidates at approved sites. Contact to make arrangements.

There is 90-minute exam time limit with 40 multiple-choice questions.
Exam retakes; price and terms subject to change:Exam retakes cost $50. Upon request from any candidate who fails the exam, Green Advantage provides a listing of concepts to emphasize in the training manual review that are based upon the exam items scored incorrectly.
