DLCA to Reopen PSI Test Centers for Trade Licensing Exams

Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA) Commissioner Richard T. Evangelista Esq.

The Virgin Islands Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs notifies licensees and the public that PSI has resumed operations of its test centers in the St. Croix and St. Thomas Districts following COVID-19 closures on March 13, 2020. PSI Services LLC is a company that DLCA contracted in 2012 to conduct professional trade licensing examinations.

To encourage safe social distancing and promote the health and well-being of customers, the PSI team, and the community who relies on the DLCA and PSI’s test centers have implemented a few security measures, including, but not limited to, those listed below:

Candidate Health Questionnaire: Candidates are required to complete a health questionnaire related to possible COVID-19 exposure and present it when they arrive at the PSI test center.

Face Coverings: Face coverings are required for all candidates and test center administrators during the entire testing experience.

Enhanced Cleaning: High-touch areas include, but are not limited to, keyboards, desktops, chair handles, check-in stations, door handles and writing instruments. They are sanitized after each use.

PSI Examination sites are located on St. Croix at the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs, 3000 Golden Rock Shopping Center, Christiansted, VI 00820; and on St. Thomas at the University of the Virgin Islands at 2 John Brewers Bay, Cell Building, St. Thomas, VI 00802. Please note that all checks for examinations must be payable to PSI.

The Test Site hours of operations are:

St. Croix location: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays

St. Thomas location: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Mondays and Thursdays

On the day of the examination, people should arrive at least 30 minutes before an appointment. This extra time is for signing, identification and familiarizing oneself with the examination process. If people arrive late, they may not be admitted to the examination site and will forfeit their examination registration fee. Dress appropriately and walk with a jacket.
