Currently we are in the process of making system changes, which will impact how payments are made and exams. As a result, any requests submitted in September must be taken by the end of SEPTEMBER . PSI has very limited available dates left. If you are wanting to take advantage of our new proctoring options, email us and we will let you know as soon as the new registration process is ready (by end of September). Note that there will be a fee increase when the changes come into effect in late September (averaging $30 increase). If you have difficulty getting a date scheduled, please notify CSA via email. We appreciate your patience as we make this much needed transition between systems and proctoring companies.
We will not sell or distribute our list. This is voluntary to help us keep you informed.
This space will be used to provide important information such as holiday schedules, updated exams, etc.
Big enhancements coming to CSA September & October of 2020. With these enhancements there will be some changes. Watch for updates as we phase in enhancements. Some changes will include:
1) Payments will be required at time of making request for assessments (this page in future)
2) To verify candidate and improve quality of ID photos, pictures will be submitted by user when requesting assessments (via drag & drop upload) and verified by proctors.
3) Exams are being updated to new codes. This includes new questions and new breakdown of topics to help identify missed questions. Study guides will also be updated to help prepare for exams.
4) There will be increased fees with new system.
At this time, you will do nothing different. We will post and email more information as it becomes available.
