The PA-CRP exam consists of 125 questions to be completed in 2 hours, with a passing rate of 70%.

In a workplace exam set-up, the student must nominate an appropriate person to supervise the exam. The supervisor can be a:

  • human resources or training manager
  • current qualified member of ANZIIF or PARIMA
  • teacher or person working in education
  • Workplace manager

However, the exam supervisor cannot be:

  • A member of the student’s family
  • A friend of the candidate

The nominated exam supervisor must first accomplish the Supervisor’s Declaration Form, submit it to  and must receive approval from the PARIMA-ANZIIF team.

The exam will last for 2 hrs. The examinee may start with whichever section they prefer and reexamine his/her past entries. The exam has an automatic save function. If  the time ever runs out before the student could click the ‘save’ button, the student could be rest assured that their progress has been saved.

Students are allowed to take a blank paper and their snacks with them. Written, typed and printed materials are not permitted. All writing paper must be left in the exam room for the Supervisor to destroy.

The student must accomplish the exam on the schedule that he/she has chosen upon registration. Failure to do so would mean that he/she has to pay the fee for re-taking the exam.
