Scheduling Your Exam
The Scheduling Authorization will specify how to schedule the examination appointment.
Candidates must schedule appointments through PSI online or over the phone at 800-733-9267. The exam must be scheduled and taken within the testing window.
Appointment times are first come, first-served! As a result, it is important to request testing date, time, and location as soon as possible following receipt of the Scheduling Authorization.
PSI will respond with a confirmation email.
While every effort will be made to accommodate first choices of date / time / location, it is not always possible to do so. Therefore, it is imperative the PSI-generated confirmation email be reviewed carefully for scheduled date / time / location.
Contact PSI at 800-733-9267 if this email confirmation is not received within 24-hours of appointment scheduling or if a change to the requested testing date / time / location is impossible to accommodate.
