Certification Exam

CBSI maintains and administers the CESI: Certification Exam for Structural Integration℠. CBSI follows a rigorous process to create a psychometrically valid certification examination. A diverse representative practitioner group works with a professional psychometrician to describe the practice of SI. The result is called a Practice Analysis (PA). The PA identifies broad domains of practice and lists the tasks within each domain with the specific knowledge statements needed to perform each task safely and competently. After the PA is validated by a profession-wide survey, it is used to create an exam to test entry-level knowledge necessary for the safe and effective practice of SI. The CESI is not meant to define or limit the scope of Structural Integration. All certified Structural Integration practitioners are encouraged to participate in writing questions for the next exam. CBSI hopes that you will consider participating in this rewarding process. 

The first official administration of the CESI took place on October 7, 2007 at the IASI Symposium in Boston. Since then, more than 400 candidates have taken the CESI. If you wish to schedule an exam in a specific locale, please contact us and we will work to bring the CESI to you. As additional exams are scheduled, dates are published to this website.

**Starting in April, the CESI will be available worldwide at Pearson VUE testing centers. Registration information will be posted here in March.
