Writing Exams as Part of Your Application

You may need to write exams to start your career after graduation or to continue your career in Alberta or the United States. In addition, after assessing your application, the Board of Examiners may require you to write exams.

If you register for an exam for which you are ineligible or do not need to write, APEGA will cancel your request and let you know that you do not need to write it.

Read each exam description closely to confirm the:

  • exams you must write
  • times and locations for writing exams
  • rescheduling and cancelling options
  • exam and study materials

Registering for Exams

After an exam registration deadline has passed, APEGA does not give refunds. You may request to reschedule an exam. These requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. Not all requests are approved. Each exam page describes the rescheduling and cancelling options.

Withdrawn Applications

The Board of Examiners gives applicants 2 years to attempt prescribed exams or courses. If the exams or courses are not attempted within 2 years, the application is withdrawn for inactivity.
