About Exams

New applicants must obtain a CIPR # www.cipr.ca before they register for an examination.

Registration for examinations must be done online (only Visa and Master Card credit card payments accepted).

Examinations are held every Monday and Tuesday in the Calgary and Edmonton AIC offices. If Monday is a Statutory Holiday the examinations are held on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Applicants must arrive 15 minutes prior to the examination start time to allow for check-in and to avoid forfeiting your exam fee. Once the exam has started late arrivals will not be admitted into the exam room and are considered to have forfeited their exam fee.

Examinations are held in Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Fort McMurray, and Grande Prairie. Complete details are available here.

Applicants from out of province wishing to write an examination in another province for Alberta must make examination arrangements by contacting us by email.

  • Washroom breaks are not allowed during the course of any examination written in Alberta.
  • If you have medical or other conditions which require special consideration, please inform us by email prior to registration. NO Exceptions to this requirement will be made at normal examination sittings.
  • Cellular telephone, PDA’s and other electronic devices are not allowed in the examination room.
  • Examination attempts are restricted to 3. After the third unsuccessful attempt a six month waiting period is imposed. This waiting period is then imposed after each additional attempt.

Examinations are scored using an optical reader. Results for all the examinations written in the Calgary and Edmonton AIC offices are available online within two days of the examination.
