To help you prepare for this exam, a complementary study guide has been developed which includes the testing objectives for this exam, sample questions and a list of resources used to develop the questions. Follow the instruction within the study guide to identify the best strategies to prepare for the exam.

Like the TETCP Level 1 exams, this is a proctored exam. You can use the same proctor you used for TETCP Level 1 or select a new proctor. You can choose from one of these options:

  • Golf course superintendent
  • Golf course administrative personnel
  • Human resources professional
  • Local distributor
  • School personnel
  • Clergy
  • Librarian

If you have someone else in mind to be your proctor, contact Diana Kern at 800-472-7878, ext. 3600, to discuss the option.

Once you have identified your proctor, that individual must contact Kern to set up a proctor username and password.
