  The FRIB superconducting driver Linac requires 104 quarter-wave resonators (QWRs, β = 0.041, 0.085), 220 half-wave resonators (HWRs, β = 0.29, 0.53), and 74 superconducting solenoid packages. Resonators and solenoids are assembled into cryomodules; 4 accelerating and 2 matching cryomodule types are required. Each cryomodule undergoes cryogenic and RF testing in a bunker prior to installation in the tunnel. The cryomodule test verifies operation of the cavities, couplers, tuners, solenoid packages, magnetic shield, and thermal shield at 4.3 K and 2 K. All of the required cryomodules for β = 0.041, 0.085, and 0.29 have been tested and certified. As of May 2019, five of the β = 0.53 cryomodules have been certified; the remaining modules are being assembled or are in the queue for testing. Cryomodule test results will be presented, including cavity performance (accelerating gradient, field emission X-rays, multipacting conditioning); solenoid package operation (current, current-lead cooling flow rate); and cryomodule heat load (static and dynamic).
