Registering for the PSI Exam (Residential Endorsement Exam)
You will need to register for the State of Alaska Residential Endorsement Exam seperately from these classes. PSI is the company that administers the exams. It has been our experience they offer a residential endorsement exam every Friday in Anchorage, but exact dates, times and locations must be coordinated through their site.
