The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and Compass Centre for Examination Development are pleased to announce the dates for the Spring 2023 administration of the CRPO Registration Examination. Registrants who are eligible to write the exam will receive direct communication in the next few days.
The exam will be delivered exclusively using an online platform with remote proctoring, in partnership with MonitorEDU. The remotely proctored examination will be available to eligible candidates on April 26, 27, and 28. Candidates are responsible for indicating their intention to write the examination with CRPO and registering for the examination using the MonitorEDU registration system. It is also the responsibility of candidates to meet the minimum standards for remotely proctored examinations as identified on the CRPO website. Registrants who are eligible to write the exam will receive direct communication in the next few days with further instructions and timelines associated with indicating their intention to write the examination.
Candidates are responsible for providing a safe, secure, and private area for testing. Candidates must meet the established minimum requirements for internet connectivity, technical hardware, and testing environment. Candidates’ hardware requirements and internet bandwidth must be pre-checked through MonitorEDU.
Remote proctoring has unique safety and security requirements that include locking down the candidate’s computer browser to prevent access to any programs or sites other than the examination platform. The remote proctor is a live individual who monitors the candidate through livestreaming using the candidate’s computer webcam and a smartphone camera.
Additional information related to frequently asked questions, Candidate Agreement, specific minimum requirements for technology and environmental conditions and exam prep resources, is posted on the Registration Exam page.
