Online practice assessments

Gain confidence and readiness as you prepare for the Continued Professional Certification Assessment (CPCA). CPCA Practice I and II are 40-question interactive, online practice assessments designed to help you:

  • Assess your knowledge of the four core domains* of anesthesia practice and identify any weaknesses that may require additional study.
  • Familiarize yourself with question formats that appear on the CPCA including multiple choice and multi select questions. There are no hotspot or short answer questions.
  • Earn credit while studying and prepping! You can earn a total of four Class A credits when you achieve an 80% passing score in your first three attempts for completing the CPCA Practice I and II (two credits for each). If you do not receive a passing score, you can still self-report the CPCA Practice activity for 1 Class B credit for every 60 minutes you were engaged in the assessment.

Take a test drive! The Quick20 is a free 20-question sample assessment with unlimited attempts designed to get you comfortable with the types of questions you can expect on the CPCA.

  • It was specifically developed by a diverse panel of CRNAs and other content experts from a variety of practice settings.
  • You have 365 days to access CPCA Practice after purchase. You do not need to complete the practice assessment in one sitting.
