Step 2: Create your PSI account here.

The name on your current (not expired), valid government identification MUST be the exact same name that appears on your exam registration confirmation e-mail from PSI. If the names do not match, it is your responsibility to notify IIBA as soon as possible so, so that PSI can be advised prior to your exam sitting.
