ICSC: International Council of Shopping Centers


Practice Tests

Are you looking for an easy, on-demand tool to assess your knowledge, or that of your staff? Look no further. These computer based assessments, written and designed by the same industry experts who create questions for ICSC professional certification exams, are the answer.

Developed to give potential certification candidates an instant opportunity to learn how the exam questions are structured, these online tests are ideal to highlight the strengths and weakness of any industry professional.  You will have up to one Hour to complete each test. Any questions answered after the time has expired will not be counted. Your time will begin when you view the first question. Navigation through out the test is not allowed. Only your first attempt at answering each question is saved. Fee: $25.

Prometric, the worldwide testing service that ICSC uses to administer the ICSC certification exams, also administers the online assessments and ePractice tests.  Participants will be charged $25 for each test, payable online at time of purchase directly to Prometric.
