ASHI Standards and Ethics Examination Handbook

Special examination arrangements and services

ASI certifies that it shall comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 USCG Section 12101, et. seq.) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2000e, et. seq.) in accommodating individuals who, because of a disability, need special arrangements to enable them to take an examination. If you need special arrangements for testing because of a disabling condition, you may ask for special testing services. All examination sites have access for individuals with movement disabilities.

Any individual requesting special testing arrangements due to impaired sensory, manual, speaking skills, or other disability must submit, either by fax (610-617-9303), or mail a written request which includes name, address, and social security number, the test date desired, test location, time of examination, and a description of the special requirements. This request must also include supporting documentation from a physician or other qualified professional reflecting a diagnosis of the condition and an explanation of the need for test aids or modifications.

ASI will provide auxiliary aids and services, except where it may fundamentally alter the examination or results, or result in an undue burden. An appointment for the examination will be scheduled upon submission of all necessary information to ASI.

ASI recommends, due to the unique nature of each request for special arrangements and the types of variables involved with testing (testing frequencies as permitted by each state and individual test center capabilities), that an individual requesting special services do so 15 business days in advance of his or her desired test date. ASI will attempt reasonable accommodations.

ASI will determine the time and place of specially arranged examinations and confirm these arrangements with the individuals directly. All special examination arrangements are subject to Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors policies.
