This diagnostic test was intentionally designed to be challenging and ensure participants have adequate Excel skills before taking MAI designation courses. For more information, check out the Diagnostic FAQ.


Excel is used extensively in the MAI designation courses; it is highly recommended that you know how to perform the necessary appraisal functions in Excel to succeed in this course.

The diagnostic test is free and can be taken at any time on your personal computer. To register for the test, please click here.
