ACA Exam?

Hi! I have certificate of archives and records management from Queens College (along with my MLS degree). I just recently found out about the ACA (The Academy of Certified Archivists) exam. Is it necessary for applying to jobs? Or is that something that is often pursued once you have years of experience on the field? I'm somewhat confused. Anyone can help?

EDIT: I think I found my answer in the ACA Handbook. In order to qualify for the exam, there are four options (two of which require a master's degree with a concentration in archives and a few years of professional archival experience). 

So just in case anyone was curious, check out the handbook on their website. :)
