All APSP certification exams are proctored and can be administered at an APSP sanctioned educational event where testing is scheduled or through an authorized testing center.
If you didn’t pass the exam, don’t worry. You can retest. We encourage you to reschedule your exam within a year of your testing date to avoid having to take the course again.
