To cater to our PAHCS members we offer many testing options:

1) Local group testing, these are special dates set up for 6 (or more) coders in one location. Coders can be from different specialties. If you know of 5 other coders who want to take a specialty test in your local area we will coordinate a special testing date time and location for your group in your local area. Contact the main PAHCS office at 888-708-4707 (or email us at for more information or to coordinate a local test in your area.

2) Individualized testing is where one examinee contacts PAHCS to test (usually in a local library). To take advantage of this program, PAHCS members need to contact their local libraries, if they offer a proctor program then we will work with you to finalize a date and time. Click here to download the "Library testing form" to get started.

3) National testing dates also exist. Most of our members take advantage of the individual testing so we do not have many national testing dates currently established. PAHCS offers all exams at all locations. Locations without specific dates are tentative and more information will be made available as dates and specific locations are established. More dates will be added as they are confirmed. For this option, please select one of the national testing dates from the list below, fill out and return the Exam Application.
