Registration Information

Registration for the spring exams opens in mid-October. Registration can be done online at www.csinet.org/certification, or via hardcopy (PDF) forms that can be downloaded from CSI’s certification website.

The registration fees include a free study guide, but do not include costs associated with acquiring other study materials, such as CSI’s Project Resource Manual textbook, or the CSI, AIA, and EJCDC standard documents on which the exams are based.

Applicants/registrants must use their legal name, as it appears on your government-issued photo ID that you will use to gain entrance to the exam, on your application and in all communications with CSI/Prometric.

Several weeks after submitting your application to CSI, you will receive a notice ("Authorization to Test") from CSI/Prometric via email or US Mail asking you to select your exam site, day, and time in the spring exam week offered. The "Authorization to Test" is your exam entrance ticket. Print it out and bring it with you to the exam.
