How do I register for a free course and get to my test?
AARC has several online continuing education courses, available for free or nominal cost, that require you to register. This registration process is important because it is the process that grants you access to the test that you must take in order to earn your credit.

Your registration process is complete when you have reached this page called “Purchase Detail.” This is your confirmation that your registration is complete. You will also receive an email with further instructions.
Depending upon what course you are registering for, your email will give you instructions for accessing your course or for proceeding on to the testing area. Your registration has now made it possible for you to access your test at Examination Central. Use your same log in and password in this area:
