Transition to Computer-Based Testing

The transition to computer-based testing will occur in July/August 2018. All examinations will be scheduled and taken in person at an approved testing site daily over a one-week period of time. Scheduling takes place beginning five weeks prior to the chosen examination testing window and is handled by PSI, the computer testing group. At that time, approved candidates* will receive a Scheduling Authorization which will provide all scheduling links and instructions. Scheduling is done on a first-come, first-served basis.

The testing windows are the dates during which the exams are administered. The application deadline dates are the dates during which candidates can register for the exam.
