Once it is clear that an Applicant is successful their status changes to Candidate; and further charges are due to complete the certification process. If more areas of expertise are indicated, there would be certification costs per topic area. 


The next stage sees the Candidate completing an investigation finished with a sample report covering their key area or one of their areas of expertise that will be chosen by the Examining Board. There is also an examination covering the Candidate's topic areas. In order to receive the certification, the Candidate must achieve a good pass in the examination and with the submitted sample report.


As soon as all parts of the certification process have been achieved the Candidate shall be awarded the ISO 17024 Certification.


This will also be made public on the AAI website in order that third parties can find the skills they need and check on the validity of single Certifications.
