ABC Testing for Certification 

The PSI testing locations have a link (LINK HERE)​ on their website with current and up-to-date information on their testing sites.  If you are scheduled to take a test, please check the link to see if you're testing site is open and still offering the test. You can also contact the testing center directly by calling the 1-800-345-6559. 


With training classes being postponed or cancelled we understand the concern to still achieve your renewal training credits. NYWEA has a link on our website for distance learning options that you can complete without attending any in-person training. The link for both pre-approved courses and distance learning appears below. Be sure to check out these options. Distance learning is a viable option during this period of social distancing.
