Become a PSI Test Site – for the NIC Interview and Performance Exam

PSI Services administers NIC Interview and Performance Exams through a system of test sites located throughout the country. The test sites administer the Performance Exams year-round on a first come first serve basis, depending on availability of the site.

Hosting a test site and administering the exams involves a commitment of time and facilities; however, it is a valuable contribution to your fellow interpreters and can be a very rewarding experience.

Contact CASLI if you are interested in getting further information on having your location be registered as a testing site.
