Exams & Waivers

Continuing Education Disclaimer: If you need Continuing Education (CE) credit for an exam, please note that only in-person exams are approved for credit. Therefore, you must purchase an in-person exam and take it at either a Prometric Testing Site or at a Corporate Testing Site. You must also submit a CE Request Form here within 5 days of taking your in-person exam.

If you do not need CE credit for an exam, you can purchase an online eLearning module (which includes both the module and exam and is completed entirely online) or an online exam (which includes just the exam and is completed entirely online).

In-Person Exam Options

Prometric Testing Sites

Prometric Testing Sites are open to everyone and are located across the U.S., Canada, and internationally. In order to take an exam at a Prometric Testing Site, you must first register for an exam through PLUS. After your registration has been processed, you'll receive the information required for scheduling your appointment directly with Prometric.

Corporate Testing Sites

Some companies have partnered with PLUS to provide on-site testing at their corporate locations. Individual Corporate Testing Sites are open only to employees of the corporate testing partner. If your company is not a Corporate Testing Site, please register using a Prometric Testing Site.

Online Exam Options

PLUS has made several elective exams available in the online format. This format includes the exam only. Corresponding modules can be studied in either the digital download or hard copy format and then the exam can be purchased and completed online. When finished with the online exam, there are no additional exams to take or appointments to make - and it will count towards your CPLP, RPLU or RPLU+ designations!

Do you have a professional designation(s) or educational experience? You may qualify for an exam waiver! Waivers count towards all designations (CPLP, RPLU, and RPLU+) as well as Certificates. Click here to view available waivers and required criteria. To receive a waiver, the following steps must be completed:
