CSEP Certification Practical Skills Review & Exams 

To become CSEP certified, approved CSEP-CPT and CSEP-CEP candidates must successfully challenge the Theory Exam and Practical Exam. Practical Skills Review sessions offer candidates an opportunity to prepare to challenge the exams. 

To register for a skills review or challenge the exams you must apply and receive confirmation that you are an approved candidate. Haven't applied yet? Learn more and apply to become a CSEP-CPT or a CSEP-CEP.  

Theory Exams 

The CSEP-CPT and CSEP-CEP Theory Exams are hosted by Pearson VUE in computer-based testing centres. Person VUE has more than 100 test centre locations throughout Canada where approved CSEP candidates are able to complete their exam on-demand and year-round. Approved candidates will receive email communication with instructions and link to book their exams.
