The RFID Professional Institute Associate Certificate exam is the first level in the RFID Professional Institute examinations designed to test a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of RFID technology and how to apply it.
The exam focuses on establishing that the candidate has a good knowledge of the principles of RFID systems and the many factors which can influence how well such a system performs. For instance, there is less emphasis on knowing exactly how to build an RFID system and more on what the components of such a system are and what role they each play. The exam is simply the mechanism by which we verify that you, the candidate, have the knowledge that we have set out in the curriculum for the certificate that we issue. It is also the mechanism by which you, the candidate, demonstrate to us that you possess that knowledge.
The exam is usually taken in two possible settings:
At an industry event
Exams are periodically held at key RFID events, such as RFID Journal LIVE! In this setting, there may be a group of candidates taking the exam at the same time in the same room. The exam is proctored by RFID Professional Institute staff.
Remotely via the Internet
The RFID Professional Institute has developed the capability to offer our exams on line. We are offering this method for both the Associate Level and Professional Level exams.
We are offering this on a Beta basis with a greatly reduced fee of US$50 until end of February 2019

The normal pass level for the RFID Professional Institute Foundation Level exam is 70 percent. Candidates are notified of their score and whether or not they have passed or failed at the end of their exam. However, this score is provisional and must not be relied upon as an indication that you have definitely passed or failed the exam.
As with all academic and professional exams, there are occasions when the scores of a group of candidates indicate that a further normalization of the scores and associated pass level is required. Candidates will normally be advised of their formal score and pass or fail within 21 days of taking the exam. The initial communication will be by email, followed by a written letter from the RFID Professional Institute President advising each candidate of his or her status.
Candidates who have passed the exam will also receive a Pass Certificate from the RFID Professional Institute signed by the president and chairman of the organisation. This certificate is the only formal confirmation that candidate has passed the exam.
If you have received an email that you have passed but have not received your certificate within 30 days of that email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
The scope of examination for the Associate level is the following:
The breadth and depth of knowledge that candidates are expected to know for each of these subject areas is explained in more detail together with samples questions in our Associate Level Examination Preparation Guide & Curriculum.
