If you would like to become an RMT in BC and you are not:
you may be able to apply for CMTBC’s registration examination after completing a prior learning assessment (PLA). The PLA determines if your knowledge, skills, and abilities are substantially equivalent to those of an applicant in one of the two categories listed above.
Before 2018, CMTBC assessed prior learning through a process called the Credential and Prior Learning Assessment (CPLA). Registration examination candidates who entered via the CPLA pathway have demonstrated difficulty with CMTBC’s registration examination (see 2017 Annual Report pages 11-14). In light of these results, CMTBC sought to provide applicants with more information about the substantial equivalence of their prior learning. CMTBC’s new Prior Learning Assessment process is under construction and will be available later this year.
PLEASE NOTE: applications for PLA will not be accepted until the new PLA process is available via the Applicant Portal.
