Existing GISPs are not eligible to take the Exam, and it is not a part of
GISP recertification. You may take the exam even if you have not completed
your portfolio application or have 4 years of Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
experience in the field. Under the current certification requirements, you
now have 6 years to complete the entire GISP application process (Portfolio
& Exam). 

GISCI has posted some exam prep information to help point you in the right
direction to find resources to use when studying for the exam. URISA is
currently working to develop a GISP Exam Prep Workshop. This will not be
available in time for the July exam dates. The initial version of the
workshop will be presented at the GIS Pro conference
erence/>  in Toronto on Monday, Oct 31, 2016. 

If you want to take the GISP Exam this July, you need to register today!
