Approved Proctors

CSIA prefers to have a CSIA instructor present when any certification exam is administered but it is not always possible. In an effort to provide secure testing to greater numbers of qualified chimney sweeps, the Certification Committee has established the CSIA Approved Proctor program.

The following CSIA Approved Proctors have agreed to act as voluntary representatives for the CSIA. Those that are Certified Chimney Sweeps cannot accept any fees for this service.  However if you are using a proctor on this list that is a private school or testing center they may have a testing fee.  If you are interested in serving as an Approved Proctor, please contact CSIA at certification@csia.org for more information.

To arrange a proctored certification exam, please contact your local Approved Proctor, community college/university testing center or Sylvan Learning Center to schedule a suitable date and time to take the exam. Once your exam date has been scheduled, contact CSIA to order your exam. Please contact CSIA either 5 business days before an online exam or 10 business days before a paper exam. Your exam will be shipped to your proctor for administration and returned to CSIA for grading and additional processing shortly after your appointment. 

Please note that this list is intended as a voluntary service for certification candidates. This list is not intended for marketing or other business development purposes.
