As of 2016, the CASC Examination will no longer be administered via pencil and paper, and no longer be administered at Ambulatory Surgery Center Association conferences.
The exam will be offered during the months of March and October. In order to sit for the March exam, CASC candidates must submit their application January 1- January 31. For the October exam, applications will need to be submitted August 1- August 31. Note: Specific examination dates and application deadlines will be posted on the CASC website.
The CASC Examination will be administered at one of 190 AMP Assessment Centers located throughout the United States. You will not need any computer experience or typing skills to take the computer examination.
