2019 NCC AP (NAADAC) Testing

The NCC AP testing, is  "on demand" and provides immediate pass/fail results.

The schedules for each testing center can vary. 

We ask that you make 2 choices on your registration.

  • You can email or mail the registration to: and pay via PayPal (below)
  • You can mail the registration and payment to: AUSAP - P.O. Box 901418 - Sandy, UT 84090

Keep in mind a few basics:

  • Monday - Friday
  • The testing sites begin testing at 9am and you can start your test every quarter hour thereafter 
    • ​However, each one is different and each season brings a new set of times available. 
    • ​They will allow you 3 hours to test; therefore, most do not allow you to begin after 1pm 
    • ​​Best advice: choose from 9am - 12pm (due to the specific schedule of each location, these can vary and we have no way to predict how they might dictate the timing)

Once we register you for your exam, you will be asked NOT to change your password until you have passed the exam.

In order to retake the exam, you will need to fill out a new registration and create a new payment; then we will need to access the site and register you for a new test. 

  • ​You cannot register yourself directly through NCC AP - your test results will be delayed to DOPL if you do not come through AUSAP (we are your NAADAC State Affiliate) - you will incur a $50 administrative fee for defaulting to registering yourself

There are changes to the testing guide as follows: There is a new chapter on DSM-5, and the supplemental guide covers MAT and Trauma - both new additions to the examTypically students will want/need both for the advanced test.  The M404 covers a significant portion of the test - it's the style of questions that changes from basic to advanced.  Where the basic covers the what and how types of questions, the advanced exam has those and many "why" questions.  The supplement guide covers this difference, and also introduces the two topics from above that are not on the basic exam.
