New NICET fee Schedule
---------------------- 
 
NICET has posted an updated fee schedule on their web server that you 
can access here: http://www.nicet.org/candidates/2010feeupdate.pdf.  
Effective 9/1/2010, the old application fee is split into two fees, 
one for testing and one for certification.  For example, if you want 
to test for Level I in Fire Alarm Systems, the fee is $120.  If you 
also want your application to be evaluated for certification, the 
additional fee is $100.
