Exam Platform Demo

This Meazure Learning platform demo can serve as a valuable tool for exam preparation. Please remember—this test is not a learning tool! Learning practice tests are located below under each credential heading. This demo is intended only to familiarize you with the Meazure Learning testing environment. Use this demo to practice advancing through test questions, marking them for further review, returning to the marked questions and submitting your exam when you are satisfied with your answers.

The questions on the demo are compiled from various programs that NAAEI offers. Try to not pay attention to the question content. Exception: For CAPS applicants a set of questions with an attachment is included so you can practice using the attachment when answering the test questions.

Credential Textbooks 

NAAEI textbooks and training materials are provided primarily in an electronic book format (except for CAMT). Please review our Credential eBook FAQ sheet for frequently asked questions on our eBooks. NAA affiliates and partners are responsible for placing eBook orders for their classes.
