Assess your Readiness to take the RAC

If you meet the eligibility criteria but are not sure you are ready to apply for the RAC examination, the RAC (US) and RAC (Global) self-assessment tools can help you determine your readiness.

NOTE:  A high score on the self-assessment is not indicative of your performance on the RAC examination and does not guarantee you will pass the examination. This self-assessment should be used as a guideline to assist you in determining your exam readiness, and areas of strength and weakness.
