ASHI Standards and Ethics Examination Handbook
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.
