Enhancing the profession to ensure quality patient care.
Educators, help your students save money on the national certifying exam! They can save substantially by bundling their benefits: AST Student Membership, Study Guide and the CST National Certifying Exam for a total savings of $115! Students must be enrolled in a CAAHEP- or ABHES-accredited program to be eligible for this discount.
Do not send payment with applications!
AST will confirm the correct payment total by email within three business days. Incorrect payment will be returned and will delay your students from receiving their exam materials from NBSTSA. Be sure you are referencing the current prices. The exam bundles
are processed with five business days upon receipt of payment.
One total payment for all applications is required and needs to be submitted AFTER AST approves the Gold Bundle Packages from your students. Credit card payments (Visa, MasterCard and American Express) offer the fastest service. Paying by cashier’s
check, money order or institutional check requires additional time for processing. Purchase orders are not accepted. Due to excessive insufficient funds, student personal checks and credit cards are not accepted.
