Public Health Agency of Canada: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): For health professionals
During the continually evolving health crisis, CSEP wants to let members and candidates know how we can support you during this time.
CSEP Members: In an effort to ease the financial burden on our members, CSEP will extend this year’s renewal deadline by 14 days (up to April 14, 2020). Also, the requirement to recertify your CPR-C has been extended by six months.
Renewal packages are currently being prepared and will be sent out as soon as we are able, although members should expect some delay on delivery as CSEP staff are working remotely and Canada Post may be reduced in the upcoming weeks. If you require a copy of your insurance certificate right away, please contact email@example.com for assistance. A copy of your membership certificate can be found on your member portal/my account/memberships
CSEP Candidates: Registration deadline extensions will be reviewed on an individual basis.
Events: If you are currently registered for a CSEP or CSEP-affiliated event, please contact the host to determine the event status. In the event that your CSEP event or activity has been cancelled, CSEP will issue a full refund without penalty. The same applies to candidates registered for exams or workshops with a CSEP Instructor-Examiner.
** Important announcement regarding Theory Exams**
PearsonVUE, CSEP’s Theory Exam host, is closing all PearsonVUE test centres in Canada and the United States, effective immediately and until April 16, 2020.
Candidates with scheduled exams will receive a cancellation notification from PearsonVUE directly with instructions on how to schedule new testing dates on or after April 16, 2020.
At this time, third party run PearsonVUE testing sites remain open at their own discretion, but with fewer testing times available.
Currently online proctoring is not affected and running as usual, and candidates are encouraged to pursue this option.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
