PICC Certification (CPUI™) Exam Instructions

Preparing for the Exam

Once your application for the CPUI™ program is accepted, purchase the "CPUI Study Guide: PICC Ultrasound Education". The "CPUI Practice Test" will be added to your account as part of this purchase. Launch the "CPUI Practice Test" program first and watch the short video on how to access and run the Remote Proctor program.

The Practice Test is intended to familiarize you with the remote proctoring process. It will guide you through connecting to Remote Proctor, ending with a short 10 question practice test. Successful completion of this process will prepare you for the live 3 hour exam.

Once you've completed all pre-exam requirements, you will be notified that your live exam access has been activated and will remain so for 3 months. The live exam is accessed through the class "CPUI Study Guide: PICC Insertion Training". Follow the instruction video on how to connect to the live exam.
