ENROLLMENT FOR THE CETP EXAMS - AUD/SLP

Graduates from Canadian Accredited Education Programs

There will be a 2-step process for applicants to sit the CETP Exams – AUD/SLP:

Step 1:

Applicants from Canadian Accredited Programs who will have completed the academic and clinical requirements of an AUD or SLP Master’s Education Program 12 business days before the next scheduled CETP Exam date may enroll for that Exam during the Exam’s enrollment period.

Step 2:

University Program Directors/Coordinators will confirm eligibility with the SAC CETP Exam Manager directly by providing the names of the students who have completed all program requirements 12 business days before the next scheduled CETP Exam date.

Graduates from Non-Accredited Canadian Education Programs

There will be a 2-step process for applicants to sit the CETP Exams – AUD/SLP:

Step 1:

Applicants from Non-Accredited Canadian Programs who will have completed the academic and clinical requirements of an AUD or SLP Master’s Education Program 15 business days before the next scheduled CETP Exam date may enroll for that Exam during the Exam’s enrollment period.

Step 2:

CASLPO will confirm the applicant’s eligibility ahead of the exam date. To confirm eligibility CASLPO must have completed a full review of your application for registration, and if all of the registration requirements have been met, CASLPO will provide directly to SAC Exam Manager the names of students from Non-Accredited Canadian Programs who are eligible for the exam at the latest 15 business days before the next scheduled CETP Exam date.

Graduates From Programs in the United States of America and International Programs

Graduates of Audiology or Speech-language pathology programs from outside of Canada must have their application assessed by CASLPO for both registration and to determine their eligibility to write the CETP Exams-AUD/SLP.  Once CASLPO has indicated that the applicant has met the requirements for registration, the applicant will be provided the link to proceed with the exam enrollment process.

An applicant from an International program may only begin their application with CASLPO after they have completed their professional master’s program in audiology or speech-language pathology.
