The registrar test consist of three parts. The first part is a theoretical test, the second part is a test of routines for maintenance of the registrar’s own data on the registrar web (log-in solution), and the third part is a review of the most common procedures for the registration and maintenance of domain names (log-in solution, EPP).

The theoretical part of the test is in Microsoft Forms. The two last parts are practical and are performed in a test system, where each registrar has been provided with two test accounts. The test system is identical to the production system, with the exception that DNS testing has been disabled and that the system will not issue emails. Your chosen EPP solution does not affect your ability to complete the test. We estimate that the test will take 1–2 hours to complete.

As a minimum, at least one employee of each registrar must complete and pass the test in order for the registrar to gain access to the registration system. However, we recommend that all employees who will be handling domain names complete the test, and that they take the test again if they have not worked with domains for an extended period of time.
