REGULATIONS

  • No conversing or any other form of communication among candidates is permitted once you enter the examination area.
  • You are prohibited from reproducing, communicating or transmitting any test content in any form for any purpose.
  • Copying or communicating content is a violation of PSI security policy. Either one may result in the disqualification of examination results, may lead to legal action and will be reported to your Licensing Authority/Sponsor.
  • Electronic devices and recording devices of any kind (including but not limited to cell phones, pagers, cameras) are NOT permitted in PSI testing centers.

Only non-programmable calculators that are silent, battery operated, do not have paper tape printing capabilities, and do not have an alphabet keyboard will be allowed in the examination site.
  • You must present valid, unexpired and acceptable ID(s) in order to take your test. Check your Candidate Information Bulletin or Licensing Authority/Sponsor for the specific rules that apply to your test.

  • You must arrive at the testing center at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled exam time in order to be admitted to take your exam.
  • Persons not scheduled to take a test are not permitted to wait in the testing center or surrounding common areas.

SPECIAL ACCOMODATIONS

All examination centers are equipped to provide access in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and every reasonable accommodation will be made in meeting a candidate's needs. Applicants with disabilities or those who would otherwise have difficulty taking the examination should review the candidate information bulletin for instructions or call our ADA Services Team at  1-800-733-9267 ext: 6750  for further information.

 

 

AT THE TEST CENTER

When should I plan to arrive at the testing center?

You should arrive at the testing center at least 30 minutes before the test is scheduled to begin.

Can my exam be taken on my PC, or do I have to go to one of your centers to test?

All exams must be administered at a PSI Test Center unless specifically mandated by your exam's Licensing Authority/Sponsor.

Are there lockers? Can I keep my purse with me?

Because the only item allowed into the testing area is identification, we encourage test takers to leave personal items at home or locked securely in your car's trunk.

I am on medication. May I bring drinks/food into the testing room?

Food and drinks are not permitted in the testing rooms. Some of the exams that we administer do allow you to take a break. The exams that do not offer break time will allow you to leave the testing area to get a drink or take medication. However, the amount of time designated for that exam is not stopped when you are away from your computer.

How crowded are the testing rooms? I need to be in a quiet environment.

A typical Test Center seats 10 candidates. Test center proctors provide a quiet and comfortable environment for all test takers. Noise reducing earplugs are available for an even quieter environment. Your Test center proctor would be glad to assist you if you have questions.

 

 

AFTER THE TEST

When will I receive my score reports?

In most cases, candidates receive their score report immediately after their test is completed. Score reporting timeframes may vary depending on exam specific program rules. Please check with your exam Licensing Authority or Sponsor for complete information.

How can I check the status of my certification? Why haven't I received it yet?

To obtain status information, you must contact your Licensing Authority/Sponsor directly.
