                        A completed Portfolio Application is not required to test.

Exams will be offered at PSI testing centers in a computer-based-format (CBT) twice each year in an expected 5-7 day testing window - summer and fall. 

The  exams in 2020 will be administered in early June, 2020 and early December, 2020. 

At this time, we expect 2021 will follow a similar examination period, with slight variances possible.

The information presented here will provide a first-level description of testing locations. 

Specific US/Canadian address locations can be found at the PSI site further down on this page.

Exam applicants will first apply to GISCI.  After payment, you will receive authorization to contact PSI for selecting a final test location and date.

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

North American Exam applications will be taken until 2 weeks prior to the first Exam date, but scheduling as early as possible is advised.

There are over 680 testing locations around the US & Canada and  over 600 more locations  in 87 countries worldwide, with additional locations constantly being added.  Each list is under constant revision, and PSI will make the final determination as to location availability.
