ACMT certification is intended for technicians employed by an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) or Self Servicing Account (SSA), or for persons motivated to demonstrate their knowledge of technician-level service and support skills. For persons not employed by an AASP or SSA, attaining ACMT certification verifies skills and knowledge that may be sought by a prospective employer, such as an Apple Reseller or a self-servicing entity like a school system.

Please note that ACMT certification by itself does not authorize a technician to perform repairs on Apple products. Information on becoming authorized for servicing Apple products can be found at:



ACMT certification is valid indefinitely. However, additional certification exams are released as new devices become certified to repair the coinciding device. These exams run $15 each and are ongoing.


Candidates getting ACMT certified for the first time are required to pass these exams:

• Mac Service Certification Exam (9L0-012) - Tests practical knowledge of effectively and safely troubleshooting and repairing Apple Mac systems, including displays.

• OS X Yosemite 10.10 Troubleshooting Exam (9L0-066) - Tests practical knowledge of Mac OS X emphasizing troubleshooting of Mac OS X version 10.10 and applies knowledge of Mac OS X 10.10 toward identifying common Mac OS X issues.
