On a continuous basis, both at in-person testing centers and online, through live remote proctoring. Candidates take their exams through PSI’s upgraded Bridge 2 platform, which uses less bandwidth than its predecessor platforms, and integrates techsupport onto the exam form.
Candidates have a 90-day window to test upon approval of their exam applications. Candidates who are unsuccessful in passing the exam will be eligible to re-test 90 days after their initial exam.
The CIP exam consists of 130 questions. Of these 130 questions, 115 are scored and 15 questions are unscored pre-test items. Candidates won’t know which questions will be scored, and which will be unscored.
Candidates will receive their exam scores by email and through PSI’s website within an hour of testing.
