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 platform, which uses less bandwidth than its predecessor platforms, and integrates tech support 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 CPIA exam consists of 135 questions. Of these 135 questions, 120 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.
