Policy on Accommodating Candidates With Disabilities

Exam candidates who require accommodation for a documented disability or special need must apply for accommodation at the time they apply for the registration examination.

CMTBC’s registration examination is a standardized exam at which all candidates are intended to have a consistent exam experience. Exam accommodations enable qualifying candidates to demonstrate their knowledge and competencies in cases where a disability or ongoing medical condition may impact their ability to do so under standard exam conditions.

The College’s approach to requests for accommodation is set out in the Policy on Accommodating Candidates with Disabilities for the Registration Examination (PDF).

Documentation of the disability must be provided to CMTBC directly from a health care practitioner with appropriate credentials and qualifications necessary to diagnose and treat the identified disability.

A note from a candidate’s general practitioner is inadequate for accommodation requests except in the case of a temporary need. Please refer to the College’s Policy on Accommodating Candidates with Disabilities for the Registration Examination (PDF), section 19, Temporary Physical Conditions.

Exam candidates must complete an Accommodation Eligibility Questionnaire for Registration Applicants (fillable PDF), and provide documentation from a qualified health care practitioner in the Accommodation Request Verification Form (fillable PDF).

Repeat candidates who previously received exam accommodation are required to contact CMTBC by emailing applicant@cmtbc.ca to arrange for accommodation of their next attempt.
