The ATT letter is sent when the licensing authority to which you are applying, or their authorized designee, makes you eligible to sit for the exam. Your ATT letter will also be available online on your Customer Dashboard. Your ATT letter will direct you to contact Prometric to schedule a time to sit for the exam.

Please note: FSBPT will not send an ATT letter until you have been approved by your jurisdiction and your registration is paid in full.
