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.

As soon as your results are ready, we will send them by email, portal notification, or mail.

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.
