Online Blended Learning Course and Exam

The CPSI Blended Learning Course is a combination of the CPSI Online Learning Course, live training sessions conducted virtually by CPSI instructors and the CPSI computer-based exam.

  • CPSI Online Learning Course: This course provides in-depth analysis of ASTM standards related to playground safety focused on the process of safety inspection from design, through audit and inspection, to maintenance and risk management practices. Participants must complete the entire Online Learning Course at least 24 hours before the CPSI Virtual Session.
  • Virtual Instructor Training Session: This training session led by the CPSI course instructor provides practical training on how to apply the ASTM standards and the CPSC guidelines to playground environments. The training is conducted through a four-hour Zoom meeting.

  • Computer-Based Exam: Participants will be provided with information on how to schedule their exam at a nearby professional testing facility. Exam results are provided on-site at the conclusion of the exam.

CPSI candidates are highly encouraged to take the course for initial certification.
