Please Note: As jurisdictions adopt less rigorous COVID-19 policies, PSI will continue to require anyone entering a PSI testing center to wear an approved face mask for the duration of their time at the location, including candidates and test center staff.
Individuals not in compliance with this policy will not be allowed to sit for their scheduled appointment.
This is in accordance with PSI’s company policy and state and local mandates.
PSI is continuing to monitor the latest developments associated with the global spread of Coronavirus – COVID-19. Since the outbreak began, we have strictly adhered to the latest safety procedures based on various international, state, and local Orders and guidelines and CDC and WHO recommendations.

Our goal is always to provide our partners, who entrust us with the delivery of their certification and licensure programs, the most accessible and appropriate testing options to support the health of the individuals we serve.
The following information represents the latest updates on the reopening of PSI’s owned and operated testing sites as of this review:
Candidate Self-Service and Support
All reschedule rules and no-show policies are waived for candidates who have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. You can reschedule within 48 hours of your exam without penalties or additional fees. If you are unable to make your exam, due to having or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, and you are reported as a no-show, you will be allowed to reschedule at no cost. Additionally, our contact centers are currently experiencing longer than usual wait times. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
We recommend utilizing the Examination Program Search for Test Takers to locate available exams, schedule and reschedule testing, and reach the PSI support team via phone. Please note, large call volumes have led to increased wait times for incoming calls.
You can also contact PSI regarding availability and scheduling by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, given the current volume of support requests, the response time is 5-7 days for email queries.
Test Center Safety
- As a candidate, you will receive a health questionnaire related to potential COVID-19 exposure via email when you schedule your examination. You are required to bring the completed form with you to the PSI test center. If you answer “yes” to any of the first four questions you will need to reschedule your exam. We recommend utilizing the self-service option or contacting PSI by email or phone to reschedule your exam.
