Exam FAQs

How do I take an exam?
PLUS is proud to offer proctored exams through Prometric. You can now take a proctored exam in-person at a testing center near you or remotely online from the comfort of your home or office. However, your exam options depend on whether you need Continuing Education (CE) credit. Click here to learn more about module and exam offerings.


I have other professional designations. Are there any waivers available for PLUS modules?

I completed exams under the old 5-part RPLU designation program a long time ago. Do I get any cross credit towards the current RPLU program?
Exams based on the original 5-part RPLU program were discontinued January 1, 2009. RPLU students who were not able to complete the designation under the old program are automatically given credit for corresponding exams under the current program.
