Exam Rules and Regulations
A recruit will agree to the conditions being eligible for taking the AASM exam for certification purposes.
Any recruit who practices deceit or cheating during the practicum or during the exam will be immediately excluded from AASM and will not be authorized to repurchase a certification or exam for 365 days or one calendar year. There are no refunds if caught cheating or practicing unauthorized tactics such as having someone complete the practicum or taking the test for a recruit. Please see the following guidelines:
Refunds on certifications that are purchased with AASM will be only within 24 hours of purchase. There are certain stipulations where a recruit may be able to get a refund after the 30 day purchase such as the following:
AASM will look at each situation on a case by case basis and make a decision based on the facts provided by the test taker to determine if the reasoning for refund is substantial.
Should a recruit fail to pass the AASM exam, there are no refunds disbursed. It is the responsibility of the recruit to prepare for the final exam by way of completing the 19 classes and taking the midterm exam after class 8, and taking the final exam and scoring a minimum of 70 on the test.
Updating Contact Information
It is highly recommended to updated contact information during your certification process. Please advise AASM of any changes to your contact information to include your name, address, phone number, or email address. Please update your AED/CPR card with any updated amended contact information as necessary.
