Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)
The Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) designation is the leading professional credential for persons seeking to work more effectively with their senior clients.
It signifies that a certificant has attained the broad-based knowledge of the health, social, and financial issues that are important to seniors, as well as the dynamics of how these factors work together in seniors� lives.
Professionals from many walks of life have added the CSA designation to their credentials. They�ve learned how incredibly gratifying it is to help seniors achieve their goals, and the seniors they�ve helped have learned how important it is to work with someone who truly understands their age-related circumstances. The result is successful professionals and satisfied seniors!
Candidates must complete four components of the CSA Education, as follows:
- Component IV
Complete the CSA Designation Program and pass the Designation Exam. The CSA Designation Program is offered in four training formats: Classroom, Self-Study, Self-Study with Fast Start, and Online.
The CSA Designation Exam is administered differently for the four methods of study. Classroom students take the test on the Saturday following their culminating CSA class. Self-Study, Self-Study with Fast Start, and Online students take a closed-book, online proctored exam. A passing score of 70% or better is required.
Self-Study and Online candidates must also submit a one-page report, detailing a personal interview that they conduct with a professional who works with seniors. Classroom and Fast Start students are not required to meet this requirement.
