CPSI Online Preparation Courses Updated!

As you prepare for your CPSI certification or if you are looking for credits toward your CPRP renewal, NRPA Online Learning recently completed a redevelopment of the CPSI preparation courses. The previous four courses have been consolidated into a single course that follows the outline of competencies covered by the CPSI exam. This course covers the most recent ASTM standards and CPSC guidelines and includes increased interactivity. Updates have also been provided to the CPSI practice exam to provide further alignment and increase the number of practice questions. Find out more and register today.

NRPA is dedicated to providing learning opportunities to advance the development of best practices and resources that make parks and recreation indispensable elements of American communities. Find out more at
