About the Exam
The SAC Clinical Certification Exam is based on Assessing and Certifying Clincial Competency: Foundations of Clinical Practice for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
To ensure appropriate representation of each area within the Foundations document, the exam is constructed in accordance with a test blueprint, which dictates the percentage of questions in each area. Download test blueprints.
