MSP and CSD Beta Certification Exams

We work hard to ensure our accredited exams are technically accurate and relevant to practical workplace safety situations, and beta exams are a critical part of our development and maintenance process. When you take an exam in its beta form, your results provide useful information to evaluate the quality of the exam and its questions.

Beta exams are new versions of the MSP and CSD certification exams that are opened to a smaller audience before being available to the general public. The MSP and CSD beta exams will include new and revised exam questions to gather performance stats for new examination forms. The exams will include 25 additional questions that will not affect your score. Thirty minutes of additional testing time is included to account for these questions. We analyze the performance of those questions and use the statistics to create the new final exams.


Why Should You Consider Taking the MSP or CSD Beta Exam?

  • Be among the world’s first 200 participants to access the new or refreshed exam content.
  • Receive over a 50% discount off the retail price of the regular certification exam.

How Do I Qualify for the MSP or CSD Beta Exams?

To qualify for the MSP and CSD Beta Exams, you must meet the same requirements as traditional MSP and CSD applicants. This requires that your current role has at least 50% of its responsibilities dedicated to workplace safety and that you fall within one of the four tracks for either exam.
