Choosing an educator

Click on name to visit the website or call to learn more about that educator's class. It's a good idea to research several options. Price is only one factor to consider; another is service, instructor interaction, including when staff will be available to answer your questions. Consider your individual learning style and the degree of instructor interaction that will best suit your needs.

  • Live classes typically offer a greater degree of instructor interaction compared to the self-study options.
  • Self-study by mail is best suited for those who simply need the study manual and minimal instruction.
  • Self-study online provides additional instruction through online courses.

About the exam

Most pre-license candidates complete the 16-hour training and then take the test at a PSI location. The PSI open-book exam consists of 80 multiple choice questions. You will have three hours to complete the exam. You must answer 70% of the exam questions correctly to pass. This PDF shows topics covered and the number of questions covered under each topic. For more information about taking the test with PSI, review the Student Bulletin.pdfStudent Bulletin - Spanish.pdf.

The Clackamas Community College SBDC program combines studying and testing. The course is completed in segments, and each segment is followed with a test. This alternative format can benefit students who have difficulty in traditional testing situations, or who have minimal experience studying and testing. For more information about this alternative testing format please contact the Clackamas Community College SBDC.
