Requirements for successful completion

Successful completion of the 9100 AATT requires that you achieve a passing score on both the Knowledge and Application Examination.

Knowledge Examination

The 9100/9101 Knowledge Examination is 1.5 hours in length and has sixty multiple-choice questions - the pass mark is 80%. Failure to achieve this score will require a full Knowledge Retake on the online platform.
This retake must be completed in a proctored environment.

Failure to achieve the required score on the Knowledge Examination will require a full knowledge retake.

Application Examination

Your score for the application section is the combined result of your online application exam (2-hours), interview, and the continuous evaluation during the training class (which includes written reports and oral communication of conclusions regarding the case study material). If the auditor score is:

  • Equal or Greater than 80%: Auditor pass
  • Between 60%and 79%: Auditor needs to apply to the 9100 Application Retake
  • Below 60%: Auditor needs to re-attempt the full 9100 AATT. A full re-attempt requires that the auditor re-purchase and complete the 9100 Online Component, and attend a new four-day 9100 AATT Instructor-Led Session offered by any approved AATT Training Provider

The online application retake is 2-hours in length and follows the same structure of the final application examination on the 4th day of the training. This retake must be completed in a proctored environment. If the score is lower than 80%, another retake can be done, up to a maximum of two times. Two failures on the application retake will require applying to the entire four-day training again.
