Thank You to our Event Sponsors:



First, we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding with the changes that have taken place to this course since March and the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic.  In order to prioritize their health and safety, NRPA will not be permitting CPSI instructors to travel and thus has cancelled in-person courses for the foreseeable future. Instead, they have released a plan for a blended learning version of the CPSI course.  The CPSI classroom course that was scheduled for October 6-8 in East Hartford, CT will now be provided as a virtual training.

The CPSI Blended Course is comprised of two steps: the completion of the CPSI Online Prep Course followed by a Live Virtual Course led by a CPSI Instructor.



  • Course participants will receive an email with information on how to access the CPSI Online Prep Course.
  • The CPSI Online Prep Course is self-paced, approximately 12 hours in length and must be completed at least 24 hours prior to the live virtual training session.  


  • The one-day virtual training course will be done via Zoom and will be 4 hours in length.
  • The virtual learning session will be led by a CPSI Instructor.
  • Participants have the choice of one of the four following dates: Jul 28, Jul 29, Oct 6, or Oct 7 - 8:00 am -12:00 pm EST (limit of 20 participants per date)
  • Registrations for the virtual learning session (zoom meeting) will be first-come, first-served. Please contact CRPA to access the signup genius link to select your Virtual Learning Session date


  • Participants that are registered for the CPSI exam will now be taking the exam at a local computer testing center.  Check the link below to find testing locations near you:
  • Participants will receive an email with information on how to schedule the exam approximately one week prior to the Live Virtual Course.


  • COURSE ONLY REGISTRANTS will still only participate in the ONLINE PREP and LIVE VIRTUAL COURSES.  You will not sign up for the exam.
  • EXAM ONLY REGISTRANTS will still only be taking the exam (exam information can be found below).  You will not receive course materials or information accessing the online course.
  • Participants must complete BOTH the CPSI Online Learning course and the CPSI Virtual Learning Session to receive CEUs.
  • Once a participant has started the online learning course and/or opened the wrapping on their books, no refunds will be issued for course.


  • Participants have 180 days from registration date to access and complete the 12-hour online course *Must complete this online course no later than 24 hours before the CPSI Virtual Learning Session*
  • Complete the 4-hour Zoom instructional meeting
  • Participants will have 83 days following the zoom meeting to take the computer based exam.
