Has your time come for scheduling the SPI examination? It is an exciting step in reaching the career goals that you have worked so hard for. Coming on the heels of years of study and practice, a measure of anxiety may arise when planning this next step. Here are a few tips to help you prepare and plan and to give you some confidence as you embark on this part of your journey.
3 Tips for Scheduling the SPI Exam
- Make sure you have your academic and clinical prerequisites completed
In order to schedule an exam date, the educational prerequisites must be met. The exact clinical hours can vary depending on circumstances and education. To determine accurately what you personally will need, check out the ARDMS website.
- Submitting an application for review
Once the prerequisites have been met, you can send in the application. A notification that your application is accepted signals that you are ready to take the next step – scheduling the SPI exam date!
- Scheduling the SPI exam testing date
The scheduling process is performed online, and you will receive a confirmation. When the application is accepted, you will have a maximum of 90 days to pick the day and time of your test. Should something come up before your exam date and you will not make it to the testing center, you have 96 hours prior to your exam time to reschedule.
For some, procrastination may set in, or nerves may tempt ones to put off the exam as long as possible. Our recommendation is this: If you have regularly been studying, practicing test-taking skills, and have a working knowledge of the material, schedule the exam sooner rather than later. If you think that your confidence can use a boost, or feel you need more help, taking practice quizzes can help you assess what you know.
