*NEW*  The current SR/WA Review Study Session and Exam is intended for SR/WA candidates under the OLD PROGRAM. 

The new Industry Pathway Certification Program has four different capstone exams — one for each industry pathway. There is no review class for the capstone exams. The current SR/WA Review Study Session is a good general review to add to their own focused study of materials, but you should NOT take the SR/WA comprehensive exam at the end of the class. 

Under the new program, the capstone exam is taken after completing all the required coursework because the exam questions are based on the specific courses they completed as part of the Industry Pathway. 


The two credentialing paths now are "In Industry" and "In Speciality". However, if you have already been going down the Generalist or Specialist career path and your candidacy was approved prior to January 14, 2016, you may finish your credential on that path. Click HERE for information on the new credentialing paths.
