Though the CSDS® exam itself isn’t any easier at this time, 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.
The CSDS test is offered also offered during the annual conference or by traveling to i-SIGMA headquarters in Phoenix. However, now CSDS exams can also be arranged wherein a nearby colleague will 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 conflicts 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 CEU 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.
