News Brief: Module Tests Pricing Updates

News Brief

In addition to removing the cost of retests (starting June 1), NCCER is also making changes to module test pricing.

This new pricing goes into effect July 1, 2021. The two new pricing options provide organizations the ability to choose the one that works best for their programs.

Option One: Annual Subscription (pre-payment model)

This option allows organizations to pay in advance based on estimated per student enrollments per year. Customers can choose to pay at the time of purchase or within 30 days of choosing the option in the shop. These annual subscriptions cover all craft module tests, including translated tests. The only exclusion to the subscription model is pipeline tests. (The name or NCCER card number of the student does NOT need to be listed at time of purchase – each single subscription can be used for any one person.)

Secondary school subscriptions - $20.00 per student for the year running from August 1 to June 30.

Non high school annual subscriptions - $24.00 per student for 12 months from the date the customer indicates their classes will begin.

Option Two: Per Test


This option is paid on a monthly basis and is based on the number of tests used within that month. These prices include translated tests but do not include pipeline tests. Customers will check the box on the shop signifying they want to be billed monthly per tests used.

• $2.25 per test – Nonprofits, schools and correctional facilities
• $2.60 per test – Business and industry

Key Points


Beginning June 1, 2021, pre-purchasing module tests in volume for a discount will no longer be available for craft or pipeline tests. During the transition to the new pricing model (June 1-30, 2021), tests will be billed based on the number of tests used during that time. That cost will be billed to the customer, or if a customer has an existing test balance, that amount will be taken from their account balance.

The new per test pricing listed above does not affect pipeline tests. These tests will remain at $5.00 per test and the subscription option will not apply.
