COVID-19 Safety Measures: Health and safety measures at PearsonVue test facilities differ depending on your location. Please find specific test delivery information for Pearson VUE-owned centres on the following link https://home.pearsonvue.com/coronavirus-update
Please note that some third-party test centers around the world are operating at limited or changed capacity based on their own discretion outside of government mandates in affected areas. They may also institute additional precautionary measures (such as the mandatory use of masks) to protect candidates and employees during this time. Not following PearsonVue COVID-19 safety measures will result in denied access to the test facilities.
The Agricultural Superintendent Certification Programme was introduced in 2014 (formerly under IFIA), and follows the same format as the existing Petroleum Inspector Certification Programme. Examinations in Africa, Asia and Europe, and in Central and South America and the Caribbean will take place on a rolling programme, with examinations being offered in each country every six months. Please follow the link to the examination schedule page to see when examinations will be offered in your region, and also to see when applications must be submitted to TIC Council for approval.
Examinations in the US, US Territories and Canada take place throughout the year, and applications can be submitted at any time.
Candidates must be employed by, or contracted to, an TIC Council member company, or to a company which has completed the required registration process.
Candidates must complete a specified set of training tasks as defined in the Training Requirements List and pass an examination. Successful candidates will receive a certificate to document their achievement. Certificates are valid for a period of five years, following which it is necessary for inspectors to be re-examined.
