How to register

If you have been ruled eligible by the Royal College to write an exam, you will receive a letter outlining exam eligibility (also known as the “ruling letter”) by email that confirms you are eligible for the Royal College exam and specifies any other requirements that must be met before certification is conferred.

With this ruling letter, you can register for your exam following the instructions found in the email linking you to our eBooking system. If you have a ruling letter but have not received a link to register for the exam, please contact the Credentials Unit at credentials@royalcollege.ca.
