Though the CSDS® exam itself isn’t any easier this year, taking it is much easier. The i-SIGMA Board of Directors has approved a program wherein existing Certified Secure Destruction Specialists® (CSDSs) will be able to proctor the examination process.
Before the new exam protocol, the CSDS test was offered only during the annual conference or by traveling to i-SIGMA headquarters in Phoenix. CSDS exams will continue to be offered during the annual conference each year; however, proctored exams can also be arranged for a nearby colleague to oversee the exam, any time of year.
Specific criteria must be met to ensure the integrity of the exam. The proctor must be approved by i-SIGMA, and there can be no apparent conflict of interest. The proctor is also required to agree to specific terms and conditions to further ensure the process is honest and transparent. Proctors are awarded Continuing Education Points for volunteering.
If you would like to take the CSDS exam via local proctoring, please first register for it and then contact the Accreditation Department to set-up your proctored exam.
