CEO - Register for the State Exam

How to Register for the State Exam

All state exams are administered by an independent testing firm PSI Services, LLC.

In order to register and pay to take the exam, candidates for examination must first be pre-approved by the COQB staff:

  1. You must complete and submit an application to create a personal record through the COQB Information Management System "SYSTEM LOG-IN"
  2. You must successfully complete the standard courses required for the area and level of the exam and have these results applied to your record.
  3. COQB staff must determine that your education and experience meets the qualification requirements stated in the Board rules for the area and level for which you have applied.
    NOTE: staff review of your application may result in requests for additional information. Your application will be placed on hold until you provide sufficient documentation at which time you may resubmit the application.
  4. Your eligibility determination must be applied to your record by COQB staff.

Once your COQB record includes your eligibility to take the exam, this information is automatically sent to PSI Services, LLC via a daily data transfer.

The Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) contains all instructions needed to register for the exam through the PSI Services, LLC web site

The CIB also lists the reference books and other materials permitted or prohibited for each exam offered by the test center.
