Exam Policy

  • You must attempt your licence/certification exam within two years of taking the prerequisite courses. The exam can be scheduled at any time during the two year period
  • A passing grade on all exams is 75% or greater. If you do not achieve a passing grade, you will not be able to apply for a certificate and/or licence.

 

You are allowed a total of three attempts to complete the exam successfully. 

You must complete these attempts within two years of the date you completed the regulatory course.  You can schedule your second exam attempt at any time after your first attempt. If you fail the second time you write the exam, you must wait three months before you write the third (last) time, to allow time for you to improve your knowledge of the subject matter.  If you fail the third time you attempt the exam, you will need to start the certification process again.
