From AccessData website:
“Starting February 1, 2018, AccessData will begin charging an administrative fee of $100 for taking the ACE certification tests through the testing system. Costs associated with offering and administering the testing system continues to rise. While we regret having to implement this fee, this is in line with other companies in the field who also charge a fee for their certification, though you will find our fee significantly lower than most. There is no fee to create or access your account on the testing system. The fee covers; Primary test attempt (if you require a second attempt – there is no charge) and Re-certification tests.”
So if you planned to take the exam, today is the best day. Go for it!
