Exam Details
The CPAS-Technical and CPAS-Clinical exams each consist of at least 50 multiple choice questions and have a 30 minute time limit. The CDIP and CPSA exams each consist of at least 100 multiple choice questions and have a 1 hour time limit.

All exams are proctored remotely by Examity. Once you purchase an exam, you will be prompted to set up an appointment to take your exam. At your scheduled exam time, you will be asked to verify your identity by a live proctor via your webcam. The live proctor will continue to proctor your exam until completion. You may cancel or reschedule your exam at any time before your scheduled appointment. If you do not appear for your exam at the scheduled time and have not cancelled or rescheduled, you will be charged $20.00 by Examity to set up a new appointment.

All exams require a minimum 70% score for passing. Upon failing, a candidate can purchase a second attempt within 6 months at a minimal charge. If the candidate does not pass on the second try, he/she may purchase a 3rd attempt for the full charge , but he/she may only take the exam a maximum of 3 times within 12 months. The exam questions will be selected randomly from a pool of questions, therefore providing always unique, different questions for the majority of the cases.
