Our examination administrator has announced the closure of its testing centres until at least May 22, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Credentialing examinations have been rescheduled for Thursday and Friday, June 25 and 26, 2020.  Should it be necessary to move the exam dates further, all registered candidates will be notified. 

However, the timeline for exam registrations remains the same as for the original May 7 and 8 dates.  The registration deadline of Friday, March 20th is still effect and we will not accept any additional  registrations. However, the withdrawal date is now extended to May 29th, 2020.  Please refer to the Examination Withdrawal and Refund Request Form if you wish to withdraw  If you do not receive your authorization to write from Yardstick Assessment Strategies by April 20th, 2020, please contact Sonography Canada at examinfo@sonographycanada.ca as soon as possible.

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.
