Pre-Course Study Materials

You will receive course study materials approximately 30 days before the course. It is extremely important that you read the course materials prior to attending the class. Failure to study the materials commonly leads to failure of the exam.


Those taking the course are eligible, but must register to take the optional exam on Friday. Participants who successfully pass the exam will be considered a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) and will be added to the national registry. Re-certification is required every 3 years. You may elect to retake the course and exam or the exam only (if within your 3 year renewal period.)

Online Testing

The option to take the CPSI exam via computer based testing is now available through NRPA. To obtain additional information please visit under CPSI. Please be advised if you register to take the examination with the course, you will not receive a refund to take your initial exam via computer based testing at a later date. Please decide now if you want to take the exam on Day 3 of the course or via a Computer Based Exam at a later date.
