Exam Dates, Schedules and Registration Periods

Posted on May 26 , 2020

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Yardstick Assessment Strategies (YAS) testing centre network will remain closed until further notice.

The May 2020 certification exams will now be offered online with ‘remote proctoring’.  This applies to all candidates who had registered for the exams originally scheduled for May 7 & 8.  This option allows candidates to take the exam from the safety of their own home. Remote proctoring is a highly validated and secure method of administering high stakes examinations, powered by artificial intelligence AND live proctoring by a highly trained professional.

Please note, the exam dates are changed to July 2nd, 3rd, and 6thAll candidates have been informed of this change and will be receiving further instructions related to the new format of remote proctoring.

We are also aware that Canadian Clinical Skills Assessments (CCSATM) performed within accredited education programs have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Students will be allowed to challenge the written exams prior to completing the CCSA, and credentials will be granted once the CCSAs are completed at a later date.

CCSAs scheduled on behalf of external candidates have also been suspended and impacted individuals have been notified.

Exam registrants will be notified by email of any further updates. Questions may be sent to examinfo@sonographycanada.ca.
