Certification Practice Test Bank

The ACF Education Foundation offers optional practice exams for purchase. The purchase or completion of the practice exam is not required for certification nor does it guarantee success in passing, but should be a good indicator of your readiness to test. Practice exams are available for 30-day unlimited access. The practice exams resemble in style and composition the actual exams, but they are not the actual exams.
