Please make sure to submit a certificate application before trying to book an exam. If you haven’t already submitted your certificate application, you can submit it by logging into your Online Services account.

Once you have submitted your certificate application and we have reviewed it, you will receive a notification to book your exam. Use your Online Services account to find your available exam and choose your preferred exam dates, times, and locations. You will not be able to book your exam until we notify you that you are eligible.

If you don’t have an account, you can register now and follow the steps to book your exam.

While booking for your exam online, you will be able to choose the location of your exam, the date, and time. If you are booking a subsequent exam, you will be required to submit an additional payment. Note that exam fees are separate from the evaluation fee, which is paid at the time of application.

See our in-person and online exam guidelines.

  • There will be no refunds once you book an exam, even if you do not write that exam.
  • You may rebook your exam as many times as you want before your exam cancellation cut-off date for free. This information can be found in your booking confirmation.
  • You will not be able to rebook your exam for free if you book your exam after the exam cancellation date.
  • Rebooking an exam after your original exam cancellation cut-off date will require you to pay the exam fee (plus tax) again.
  • If the cancellation cut-off date has passed and you want to rebook, then you will be required to pay the exam fee plus tax again.
  • Clients that do not show up for an exam sitting will be recorded as a “no show”. Subsequent requests will be charged the exam fee (plus tax).
  • You will be notified if Technical Safety BC's review identifies a breach of the exam rules. Any finding of a breach of exam rules may invalidate your exam result, and you may be subject to a prohibition of six (6) months before you are allowed to write future exams or obtain qualifications. You will not be issued a certificate of qualification if your exam result is invalid. Depending on the circumstances, further actions may be taken, including but not limited to, assessment of pre-existing qualifications, remedial training, and suspension or revocation of existing qualifications.

Your exam results will arrive by portal notification, mail, or email. If you don’t need to submit any additional documents, you will receive another notification when your certification letter and wallet card have been issued.
