International Exam applications will end 2 weeks before the first Exam date but scheduling as early as possible is advised.

There are over 580 testing locations worldwide, with the majority in the US & Canada. with additional locations constantly being added.  Each list is under constant revision, and PSI will make the final determination as to location availability. 

PSI Update Regarding Testing Center Closures Regarding Covid-19:

PSI owned and operated test centers in the US have reopened, meeting social distancing requirements, and will be constantly revaluated.   Individuals who schedule and are unable to test will have their exam fees refunded or carried over to the next exam session.   Contact GISCI to make appropriate refund/carryover arrangements.

PSI continues to improve their phone an email support, but they continue to see overwhelming calls.  I would suggest that candidates bring scheduling problems to us, where, as a client, we have communication resourses we can bring to bear on a specific problem.

PSI continues to monitor the changing situation with COVID-19, and they will provide updates as warranted on this health emergency until it passes.  As testing ceners open and close, the updated list of test center status can be found here:
