July 14, 2020

Glendale, CA – PSI Services LLC (PSI), a global workforce solutions provider of best-in-class assessment content and comprehensive certification program services, has been awarded a new contract with the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) as its test delivery partner. GARP is a not-for-profit membership organization focused on elevating the practice of risk management, offering risk certification – the Financial Risk Manager® and Energy Risk Professional® (ERP) – as well as the Sustainability and Climate Risk™ certificate.

PSI will work with GARP to transition its exam delivery to computer-based testing for its ERP exams beginning in May 2021. The exams will be delivered via PSI’s extensive global test center network and through event testing in high demand locations. Registration for the May 2021 ERP Exam opens December 1, 2020.

PSI has helped many clients make the move from paper-based to computer-based testing, leveraging its seasoned migration teams and tested project management methodologies to ensure success. Proven procedures and a flexible testing network provide a smooth transition for test sponsors and candidates alike.

William May, Global Head of Certifications and Educational Programs at GARP, commented on the new partnership, “PSI’s solution represented the right fit for us as we move to computer-based testing. With our exams spanning many different countries around the world, working with a partner who can deliver an exceptional and consistent level of service is essential. PSI’s large test center network and ability to deliver in a minimal testing window ensures that we have a smooth transition and maintains the rich experience we need to deliver to candidates,” he said.

“We are incredibly excited about the new partnership with GARP, the recognized leading association and provider of certifications for risk professionals,” commented Rory McCorkle, Senior Vice President of PSI’s Certification and Admissions Services. “There are many complexities to consider when making the transition from paper-based testing, especially when you have a global program like this one. We have done extensive work to plan this critical project for GARP and will utilize our  experience in paper-based transitions to work with GARP’s Board, staff, and stakeholders in this transition. We look forward to helping this critical organization provide a seamless transition for its candidates.”
