PROGRAM DETAILS

PREPARATION
You will receive your course books approximately three (3) weeks prior to your virtual instruction. It is extremely important that you read the course materials prior to attending the virtual instruction. Failure to study the materials before the course commonly leads to failure of the exam.

COURSE INSTRUCTION

You will be given access to twelve (12) hours of CPSI Interactive Online Learning Course for 180 days. All course content, including the books, should be viewed at least twenty-four (24) hours before the virtual instruction. When registering you will select a date for a four-hour virtual training with a CPSI instructor, allowing for Q&A on your selected date.

 

TESTING

One week before the 4-hour virtual training, you will receive a confirmation email to schedule their examination when processed by NRPA. You will need to schedule your own examination at a professional testing site within 90 days from when you are sent the confirmation email.

 

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.
