In line with our evolving business needs Prometric will not continue to offer GenCat testing as of August 31, 2021 and registration has been closed. Please refer to your city sponsor for alternative testing mediums, questions, or concerns.

Prometric will no longer be referring candidates to Builder’s Book Depot or any specific vendor to purchase reference materials for our Construction Catalog exams. Please refer to the Bulletin of Information here for your exam to determine the materials you need.
