Those working to gain their Apple Certified Macintosh Technician certification (ACMT) in order to become an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP).
Apple Certified Macintosh Technician (ACMT) certification verifies the ability to perform basic troubleshooting and repair of both desktop and portable Macintosh systems, such as iMac and MacBook Pro. ACMT certification exams emphasize identifying and resolving common Mac OS X problems, and using Apple Service and Support products and practices to effectively repair Apple hardware.
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: apple.com/support/programs/
ACMT certification is valid indefinitely. However, additional certification exams are released as new devices become available. You must take these additional exams in order to 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:
Technicians employed by AASPs and SSPs access the self-paced training materials on Apple's Global Service Exchange. GSX is available to technicians employed by AASPs and SSPs only.
