CSRS™ Exam and Certification Renewal Process

The CSRS™ Exam

The CSRS™ examination is administered and managed by the American Stroke Association. As with any other continuing education course, you must attend all four courses and sign in and out on all days to receive continuing education credits for your attendance, and to sit for the exam. Your signature is our only way to verify your attendance after the course has concluded to licensure boards and for certification testing to occur.

After successfully completing the four-seminar series, you will be eligible to take the CSRS™ exam. The 3-hour exam is online, and consists of 100 questions based on material covered during the four-part CSRS™ series. You will have three months after completion of your Level 4 CSRS™ course to take the exam.

Successful test completion with a score of 80 percent or above grants the CSRS™ credentials. After passing the CSRS™ examination, certified therapists may use the “CSRS” credential after their professional credentials.

The fee to become certified is $175. Because the test is administered by the American Stroke Association, your testing fee is applied to services and resources for stroke prevention, research, and for stroke survivors.


CSRS™ certificants are passionate clinician-specialists and advocates for outstanding, evidence based stroke care. As such, to maintain certification, 16 hours of continuing education specific to stroke rehabilitation is required every two years.

Administered by The American Stroke Association, we use an online process to renew certification. The link for renewal is available here.

Ten percent of applicants will be subject to an audit of their continuing education coursework. On the renewal site you will see various methods that can be used to obtain CEUs.
