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. Approved candidates can take the computer-based exam at one of Pearson VUEs100 test centre locations throughout Canada or through Pearson VUE’s secure online proctoring platform.

Approved candidates will receive email communication with instructions and link to book their exams.

To schedule a Theory Exam you need to:

  • Apply to be a CSEP-CPT or CSEP-CEP candidate 
  • Purchase a Theory Exam attempt by following the directions in your application approval email
  • Special Exam Accommodations: Prior to scheduling your exam, candidates with diagnosed disabilities requiring special accommodations can contact memberships@csep.ca for more information. 
  • CSEP-CPT Candidates: You need to own the CSEP-PATH Manual and use the unique registration code from the manual when purchasing your exam attempt. 
Theory Exam Sitting Fees

To successfully complete the Theory Exam candidates need to attain 70% or higher.

Upcoming Practical Skills Review & Practical Exams

You need to apply and be an approved candidate to register for a Practical Exam or Practical Skills Review session. As an approved candidate, you will receive the monthly Candidate Newsletter featuring tips and upcoming certification event information. 

Practical exams are run in various cities across Canada by CSEP Instructor-Examiners (IE)s and scheduled in part based on candidate demand. Depending on your location you may need to travel to complete the Practical Exam. While practical skills review sessions are not a required step to becoming certified some practical exam events include a Skills Review session in their price. 

CSEP-CPT Candidates: To register for an event please use the unique registration code in your letter of approval.
