UPDATED PRACTICAL GRADING PROCEDURES – SIMULATED PRODUCTS NO LONGER ALLOWED EFFECTIVE 11/1/2021:

The NIC Executive Board recently revisited the temporary authorization to accept "best attempt" or "simulated product" for disinfectant wipes for Practical exams and has reinstated the original requirement regarding the use of disinfectant wipes, and will no longer accept "best attempt" or "simulated products" in the testing centers. 

Effective November 1, 2021, all practical exam candidates will be required to use EPA registered, disinfectant WIPES that demonstrate bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal properties, as outlined in the Candidate Information Bulletin.  This information is located in the practical candidate handbook. Candidates MUST use only DISINFECTING WIPES during the practical exams.  Spray disinfectants will NOT be permitted.  In addition, simulated hand sanitizer and antiseptics will no longer be accepted. Please make sure you purchase supplies well in advance of your scheduled exam, to insure you have the required supplies.  

Candidates that do not have proper hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and/or antiseptic, will be deducted points as of November 1. 2021.  REMINDER - EFFECTIVE 7/1/2020: Candidates MUST use only DISINFECTING WIPES during the practical exams.  Spray disinfectants will NOT be permitted.
