Upcoming CPSI Courses

˜The CPSI exam consists of 100 questions.  The testing agency will notify NRPA of your score approximately (4-6) weeks following the examination. NRPA will provide your exam results and an exam score report via email once the scores are received. Your name will also be listed on the nation-wide CPSI Directory if you become certified.

Please note that NRPA has a Request for Special Examination Accommodations Form at http://www.nrpa.org/siteassets/cpsi-accommodation-request.pdf (sorry, large print not available for the CPSI exam) and a English as a Second Language Accommodation Request Form at http://www.nrpa.org/siteassets/cpsi-esl-request-form.pdf. Both requests have early accommodation dates so please do not delay in submitting your request form directly to NRPA.
