RLLD certification candidates can schedule the examination at any time during the year. The exam must be administered through an ALM approved testing facility.  

The RLLD certification exam will no longer be administered during the college. To schedule an RLLD examination, contact Christina Horsley, Professional Development Manager. The examination fee is $200 for members and $395 for non-members. Testing candidates will also be responsible for the fee charged by the testing facility.
