To register for exams, you must submit your NCSO® / NHSA™ application for review first. Once your application is reviewed and approved, you can register.
During this transitionary period, you may submit your application in your NCSO®/NHSA™ portal. You will not see any exam dates posted there. Please periodically check the calendar below for course dates. When you are ready to write your exam, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online exams will still follow a scheduled format.

If a candidate completes an exam unsuccessfully, they will be required to wait 90 days before reattempting the exam. A second unsuccessful attempt will result in a 12-month waiting period. After 3 consecutive unsuccessful attempts, the candidate will have to repeat all NCSO®/NHSA™ compulsory and elective courses and restart their application before being eligible to write the exam again. Each additional attempt costs $60 + GST for the National Exam and $40 + GST for the Provincial Exam. Any unsuccessful attempts in other provinces will not affect your status with the BCCSA.
