Review the Candidate Handbook for the detailed examination specifications and information on what to expect before, during, and after the exam. 

Scheduling an Exam

The exam is delivered two times each year during approximately month-long exam windows at PSI test sites throughout the US and its territories. Once an applicant’s examination application has been reviewed and approved, the candidate will be eligible to schedule an exam session during the next available exam window at an available date and location of his/her choosing.

Additional details are available in the Candidate Handbook.
