All requests for an exception to standard testing procedures must be submitted via email to the CAIA Association and directed to the attention of Candidate Services at The request should be made after registering and before scheduling an exam appointment with the testing provider. Supporting documentation from the physician(s) treating the condition for which you are requesting special accommodations is required. Said documents should attest to a diagnosis and the condition's relevance to the special testing conditions you are seeking. This documentation should be current and signed by the treating physician(s). Learning disability documentation needs to be current within the last three years. Once approved by the CAIA Association, the request will be forwarded to Pearson VUE, the testing provider who, in turn, will work directly with the individual to schedule the exam appointment. In order for the testing provider to make suitable arrangements, please submit this request no less than six weeks prior to the testing window. If less notice is given, every effort will be made to provide reasonable accommodations, but special accommodations cannot be guaranteed.
