PROGRAM DETAILS

PREPARATION

You will receive your course materials approximately three weeks prior to the first day of the course. It is extremely important that you read the course materials prior to attending the class. Failure to study the materials before the course commonly leads to failure of the exam. 

CERTIFICATION

You will receive a notification with your exam results 6-8 weeks after the exam directly from NRPA. If you pass the exam you will be certified as a CPSI Inspector for a period of three years. At the end of your certification cycle, you can elect to attend the course again (recommended) or elect to take the exam only. Due to changes in regulations and content, it is highly recommended your repeat the course work prior to renewing your certification.
