CASAC Exam Preparation

May 4th Update: In response to the current health crisis, CASAC Exam Prep will  soon be available online. You may submit an application for Exam Prep and will be contacted when the class is scheduled.

Taking the CASAC exam can be a challenging endeavor. Outreach Training Institute (OTI) boosts exam-takers’ confidence with its 21-hour CASAC Exam Preparation Course. Loaded with the tips and strategies needed to conquer the exam, the 21-hour course consists of three sessions designed to help.

OTI’s prep course reflects updates made to the CASAC exam in 2015, including condensing the previous eight domains into four, a focus on new subjects, and the updated criteria from the release of the DSM-V.

Classes are offered at our Queens and Long Island campuses into early 2020. Please review our registration form for details.
