ALEP > ALEP Examination


Certification Examination

Upon meeting all of the eligibility requirements, all candidates must pass the certification examination. The Commission has developed a bank of multiple choice and true/false questions which will be used for the examination. The questions were developed from the chapters in "Creating Connections: The CEFPI Guide for Educational Facility Planning," which serves as the primary reference guide for the examination. In addition, questions were also created from selected supplementary reading references. All of the questions are intended to demonstrate the candidates’ knowledge and expertise in the practice of educational facility planning.
