Many people ask "how can I become a Certified Access Specialist (CASp)”?
First and foremost, the state’s CASp examination is administer through the Division of State Architect (DSA). You must complete a candidate eligibility application form online at DSA CASp Registration or you can down load a snail mail application form (DSA-600) and start your process to "qualify" to take the examination. The qualification process is very important and is very similar to a job application. The qualification process looks at your experience, education or both in the areas of access compliance and application. This may come from design, construction, inspection, plan review, consulting, or other related fields.
It is best to approach the registration process and application like a job application to increase your chances of being approved. Like with any application, incomplete or pertinent information missing may hinder your chances of being approved.
The best source of information and the different ways to qualify, is the DSA CASp Handbook. You can download it here: CASp Handbook. Please direct any inquiries about the registration requirements to CASprogram@dgs.ca.gov or call (916) 323-2737. CASp examination test dates for 2017 are available here: (Click Here)
