Complete details on the application process are available including eligibility requirements and advice about whether your experience qualifies you to take the exam. The application window for the November 2015 exam will open on June 2, 2015. There is a $70 filing fee and if approved, there is then a $425 exam fee.
APA also offers a step by step guide to preparing for the exam. There are no scheduled exam prep sessions offered this summer. Pennsylvania and DC typically offer exam training sessions in the fall.
