DO NOT USE THIS PAGE AS IT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR TESTING
When you are ready to "Request an Assessment" Read the following instructions and submit the form below.
Visit the "Test Info" page and appropriate "Assessment Subject" page for important study material and information about assessments. If you are new to CSA please read this document (click link) to answer questions about CSA certifications.
Ensure the candidate has all study material and is ready for exam.
Complete and submit the form below along with picture of candidate and credit card payment. Make sure to establish if exam will be taken at a proctoring center or online proctored.
Upon review, CSA will process your request and forward necessary information to our proctoring partner (Kriterion).
Within 3 business days you should receive an Email from our proctoring partner to schedule your assessment. You normally have 90 days from the initial request to take an assessment.
If you will be taking an online proctored exam, make sure you have the correct computer equipment and have tested the system. Online schedule changes must be made 24-hours in advance. If you are taking exam at a proctoring center, you will be able to select your location, date, and time when you get the Kriterion email. Proctored center changes must be made at least 72 hours before the assessment start time.
We ask that emails and passwords not be changed to avoid issues in contacting you or launching the exams.
You must provide your own copies of code books for open book tests. The test center will not provide books. Candidates are now required to bring their own basic non-programable calculators. Such as Dollar Tree or Dollar General will work. Make sure you download appropriate materials from our web site for your respective test. View "Test Info" and "Assessment Subjects" for important information to help you prepare for a test.
Upon passing an assessment, an ID card and certificate will be mailed in approximately 3 weeks. Unless indicated otherwise, all assessments require an 80% passing score and expire in three years. Score results will automatically be emailed to the email address in our system.
If you need to retake an assessment due to not passing or missing an exam time, you must process a new Request from the CSA website and pay new fees.
There are no refunds or cancellation once you make a payment. Substitutions of other participants are not allowed. Schedule changes must be made by the user on-line 24 or 72 hours before the scheduled assessment (depending on proctoring type). By requesting and paying for an assessment you agree to CSA Terms and Conditions. Additional terms and conditions may apply as outlined by the proctoring company. We strongly recommend that you do not schedule your exam within three days as you may not be able to make changes.
