Certification is a significant differentiator, and the rigorous exam process requires concentrated study. Successful candidates are well prepared, and a number of available resources can assist pre-qualified applicants.
The Board provides candidates with the Content Outline specific to each examination either online or available upon request from BPS. Candidates are strongly encouraged to become thoroughly familiar with this document. Since Content Outlines are occasionally modified to reflect changes in practice, applicants should check that they are using the most current version for their specialty.
