Exam Dates and Locations

There are two options available for candidates to sit for their certification exams: paper-based exams offered by a chapter or affiliated organization, or computer-based exams administered at a Pearson VUE testing facility.

Selecting A Date & Location For A Computer-Based Exam

If you choose to test at a Pearson VUE testing facility, you determine your own test date and location. You must first submit your application to ISA and receive approval before contacting Pearson VUE to schedule your exam at one of their testing centers.

Selecting A Date & Location For A Paper-Based Exam

If you plan to take a paper-based exam, you must choose a date and location that is offered by a Chapter or Affiliated Organization. Please view the calendar for a list of exam dates and locations scheduled over the coming months. After choosing a location, you must complete an application in order to enroll in the exam.
