The exam will be proctored twice in February and once a month in March, April and May as follows:

Plan on arriving 30 minutes prior to the start time to register and complete the associated paperwork. Space may be limited, so register soon. A minimum of ten people must be registered at least 1 week before the exam, or the testing may be cancelled.
The fees for taking the exam will be covered through a grant currently administered by the Indiana Youth Services Association (IYSA). If you complete your application and receive your certification by June 30th, the application fee will also be covered. (Which means this certification is NO cost to you.)
HOWEVER...YOU will be charged for the cost of the exam if you register but are a no show or cancel the day of the exam.
