Theory Test Administration

PSI administers your tests in its permanent Premier PLUS™ test centers – a national network of over 260 computer-based test centers located throughout all 50 states and US territories. PSI has strict guidelines and expectations for its test centers and performs audits routinely, mostly unannounced as “secret shoppers” in order to ensure great service to candidates.

  • UNBIASED: Our test center network ensures that each candidate, no matter where he or she takes an examination, will have the same testing experience as all other candidates.
  • CONVENIENT: Our test center locations can provide accessibility not only during weekdays, but also weekends and evenings to accommodate the number of candidates wanting to schedule appointments.
  • FLEXIBLE: In the event of a surge in volume, PSI can add examination sessions, days, or stations because the test centers are totally under the company’s control.
  • SECURE: Equipped with highly trained test center administrators, DVRs, and lockers, PSI test centers boast highest security both for identifying the right candidates and for keeping test materials safe.

Practical Test Administration

Setting: Practical examinations can be administered in PSI test centers or in an environment such as a hotel. Each area is selected according to strict guidelines and with approval of our clients.

Examiners: PSI recruits, trains, and certifies qualified examiners to monitor and score the practical tests. Consistency between examiners is actively measured and managed by our Cosmetology Client Services Manager.

Immediate Scoring: PSI provides a score report right after the test has concluded to allow candidates to know right away if they have passed or failed the practical test.
