Examination Dates and Locations
Applications to take an exam are due in the AIRS office 30 days prior to a test.
Additional Option: "Proctor U" Testing Option (for at home or at work) -- Providing you have a webcam and a high-speed Internet connection, the AIRS Certification exam can be taken either at home or at work. AIRS is partnering with a commercial service called ProctorU that provides online one-on-one proctoring via webcam. Essentially, you log on to the system and connect with a staff member at ProctorU who will check your photo ID, ensure that your computer has no other programs running, that your work area is clear and that during the exam, you remain in your chair and attentive only to the exam. There is a $25 charge for this service that is paid directly to ProctorU via credit card. AIRS does not receive any revenue from this service. However, this is a viable option particularly for someone wanting a re-test or facing a long journey to another testing site.
If the ProctorU option is your preference, you need to indicate that choice in the appropriate area of your Certification Application form. Once your exam application has been approved, you will receive an email with step by step instructions on how to set your appointment with ProctorU and pay the $25 fee to them as well. Do not contact ProctorU until you have received an email from AIRS letting you know your exam application has been approved.
For additional questions, or to schedule a test, contact the AIRS Headquarters at 703-218-AIRS (2477) ext 201 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE that from March 16th 2015, the CIRS-A exam will no longer be available and all candidates seeking this specialized credential will be the CIRS-Aging/Disabilties (CIRS-A/D) exam.
