Utah Certification Mock Exam

You must first pass the Utah Knowledge Exam before applying for the Utah Certification Mock Exam.

Candidates will be able to get a copy of their exam to take with them. Candidates must bring their own BLANK USB/Flash Drive if the candidate wishes to obtain a copy of the mock exam. Failure to bring a blank USB/Flash Drive will not prevent the candidate from taking the exam. The Mock Exam is not a skills assessment. No feedback is given.

To apply for a Mock Exam, send a request to uip@utah.gov with Mock Exam Request in the subject line. Mock exams are given on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Please list a few date options when making a request.
