The deadline to sit for the June 2022 CSP exam has passed.  Please check back around the end of July when we hope to have information about the fall exam.

Please ensure your WiFi enabled computer you will be using to take the exam meets the minimum System Requirements.  Download and install the required WebLock browser lockdown application on the device you will be using to take the exam - not recommended you do this the day of the CSP exam in case there are technical difficulties.  If WebLock will not install please use a different device.

COVID-19 In-Person Exam Protocol

The BCP has implemented a COVID-19 safety policy for in-person examinees who are sitting for the CSP exams during the pandemic.  Every in-person examinee agrees to and abides to these CDC-based guidelines - see COVID-19 CSP Examination Agreement below.  If an examinee declines to agree to and abide by these guidelines in-person exam entry will be refused and the examinee's exam will not be scored.  If you inform the BCP you will not or cannot abide by this policy please contact the BCP immediately to cancel your exam.  No refunds will be offered on the day of the exam.  These same guidelines apply to in-person exam proctors.  

CSP exam format change starting in 2022:

For years examinees have requested an online remote exam format.  Starting in 2022 the CSP exam is moving from a paper-and-pencil format to a digital format.  This is a significant administration change while maintaining the same high standards established many years ago.  The BCP is very proud of that fact that the exam is psychometrically sound with a 0.91 reliability (2021).  Many months have been devoted to ensure the transition from paper to digital will preserve exam reliability as well as test taking security.

2 exam formats depending on the exam date - (same $450 application fee):

  1. In-Person* at the National Association of Psychometrists (NAP) conference or
  2. Remote/online when not coinciding with NAP conferences (does not include any benefits below) 
Those who sit for the In-Person exam at NAP can use either a laptop or tablet - make sure the battery has enough charge for the 150 minute exam as no additional time will be provided.  Those opting for the remote/online exam are required to use a desktop or laptop computer.  Mobile phones are not compatible with the exam administration platform.  

Benefits of the In-Person exam**:

Sitting for the In-Person exam at the NAP conference offers significant reimbursed benefits - all 4 below are included:

  1. NAP conference registration for this year AND next year,
  2. NAP membership for this year AND next year,
  3. NAP conference hotel lodging reimbursement of $100/night up to 3 nights this year AND next year, and 
  4. 1-hr exclusive exam consultation with a CSP exam Subject Matter Expert the morning of the exam

These incentives are worth more than $1100.  In order to qualify for these reimbursed benefits examinees are required to attend all conference presentations.  This is an all-or-none offer and those who take advantage of it will realize the benefits far outweigh the expense of taking the exam at the conference.  You can also earn CEUs for your CSP credential when attending the conference.  Eligibility is not dependent on pass/fail of the CSP exam - all who sit for the in-person exam at NAP are eligible (except current CSPs).  

Accepting these benefits means you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this offer.  Examinees who sit for the CSP exam at the NAP conference and wish to take advantage of the above reimbursed benefits agree to allow their limited contact information to be shared with NAP so NAP can confirm examinees meet their obligations of this agreement.  Specifically, each in-person examinee is required to stay at the NAP conference hotel and attend all conference presentations as this is an all-or-none offer.  

* - In-person exams require examinees to bring their own Wifi/internet capable laptop or tablet (mobile phones are not compatible with the exam delivery platform).  It is strongly recommended you check to make sure the computer you plan to use meets the minimum system requirements and can hold a charge for 150+ minutes should you need the full time to complete the exam. 

** - benefits cannot be combined with future offers and are not available for any remote/online exam

Please remember to have your current government issued photo identification and exam registration letter (provided upon application review & approval) available at the time you sit for the exam as you will need to present both to the exam proctors.

Application deadline to sit for the June CSP exam has closed.

We hope to have information about the fall exam by the end of July - please check back for updates.  In the meantime we are leaving information about the June exam below.
