Three additional trial exams for the PATH Intl. CTRI certification have been announced. The dates and locations for these trials are:
State University of New York College (SUNY Cobleskill, NY)
6 to 8:30 p.m. ET
PATH Intl. Region 10 conference (Colorado Springs, Colorado)
3:30 to 6 p.m. MT
PATH Intl. Region 4 conference (Augusta, Michigan)
May 16, 1:30 to 4 p.m. ET
The purpose of the trial exams is to confirm that the PATH Intl. CTRI certification
exam questions perform to expectations and to determine an appropriate cut score (passing score) for the exam. For security of the exam questions, the trial exams will be offered in written pen and pencil format, administered by a test administrator from Professional Testing, Inc.
Participation can count for 2.5 Riding CR or 2.5 CE continuing education hours (CEUs).
Trial exam scores will NOT be recorded nor impact any certifications held nor future certification applications. The exam questions will be scored with the sole purpose of analyzing question performance across all exams completed, NOT analyzing individual tester performance.
Please contact Bret Maceyak (
) to sign up for any of these trials. (Please specify in your email for which date or location you wish to sign up.)
On March 1
, 2019, PATH Intl. communicated updated information about the upcoming pilot for the PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor (CTRI) Certification including the pilot for the application paperwork. The PATH Intl. Credentialing Council will soon be releasing the application paperwork, instructions and supplementary explanations. As a result, the PATH Intl. CTRI application paperwork pilot will now commence as soon as the credentialing council has released the finalized paperwork, which is anticipated to be April 1
In light of this shift for the application paperwork pilot, we will also be pushing back the pilot for the PATH Intl. CTRI certification transition process. This pilot will commence in the latter half of April. It is acknowledged that some members have put off renewing their certifications in anticipation of being able to participate in this pilot. PATH Intl. assures members that it will be flexible on renewal deadlines, particularly for those members who request to participate in the PATH Intl. CTRI certification transition process pilot and have a renewal date of March 31-April 30
If you have contacted Bret Maceyak and expressed interest in participating in pilots, please stand by for further instructions.
