IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BOTH WRITTENS AND PRACTICAL EXAMS:
Students must present the admittance form issued to them by NRCan along with photo ID before an examination can be started. Nothing can be brought into the exam area (i.e. beverages, pencil cases, etc.). We will supply everything that you will need:

  • scientific calculator
  • pens and pencils
  • scrap paper

For students taking their practical exam, safety shoes and long pants are mandatory. If a lunch is brought in for a practical exam, it will be checked.
