The Registration Regulation sets out the following timelines for an RP (Qualifying) to make their first and third attempt at the Registration Exam:
- The first attempt at the exam must be made within the 24-month period following the date on which an application was submitted.
- The final exam attempt must be made within the five-year period following the date on which an application was submitted.
The Examination Committee previously granted two mass extensions for registrants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic:
Some registrants, who are past their first or final exam attempt deadline, are still unable to write the exam due to the pandemic, including for the following reasons:
- Unable to pay for the exam due to financial impacts resulting from the pandemic.
- Unable to meet environmental or technological requirements to write the exam via remote proctoring (e.g., no quiet room in home, insufficient internet).
As such, the Examination Committee has granted a mass extension for any registrants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic who are/were unable to make their first or final exam attempt within the timelines specified in the Registration Regulation to the spring 2023 exam administration. For example, a registrant whose last opportunity to make their first exam attempt is/was the fall 2022 exam or earlier sittings, will now have either the fall 2022 or spring 2023 exam administration to make their first attempt.
