All candidates applying for the APE that completed their Level 1 examination after January 1, 2014 and do not have a post-graduate University degree (i.e. MClSc, MSc, or PhD) must have completed the on-line research course thru either the University of Toronto or Université Laval. If you completed your Level 1 examination prior to January 1, 2014 you are exempt from this requirement. However you will need to include the following with your application:  proof of either your Level 1 exam completion before January 1, 2014 OR a certificate of completion of the on-line research course (University of Toronto or Université Laval) OR proof of a post-graduate diploma (MClSc or MSc or PhD).
The course is called “Introduction to Clinical Research to Support Evidence-Based Practice in Manual Therapy” and must be completed BEFORE registering to the 2018 Advanced Exam. This course is now an entire part of our course curriculum. 
The Mentorship Hours Log and Mentor/Mentee Form of an Actual Patient Form must be completed and sent in with your application. You will not receive your marks until this has been received.

The Multiple Choice and Case History Exam will be on September 15th, 2018. All efforts are made to find a testing site close to each applicant.

Practical Exam will be held in two sites, one in the east and one in the west:

  • East – October 27-28, 2018
    (A second East date will be added November 17-18, 2018 if needed. Please keep both dates available)
  • West – November 3-4, 2018

Clarification of Mentorship Requirements

During this transitional period there has been a lot of confusion regarding who is required to complete the mentorship hours. Please read below to determine whether you will need to complete the mentorship hours prior to registering for the Intermediate or Advanced Exams.

 

Intermediate Exam Requirements:

You must complete the 90 Mentorship hours prior to registering for the Intermediate Exam if one of the following scenarios applies to you:

  1. You registered to complete one or all components of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 and did not attend the Exam.
  2. You registered for one or more components of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 and failed all of the components for which you registered. Failure to successfully complete one or more components of the Intermediate exam prior to 2005 does not constitute successful entry into the “old system”.
  • Example 1: An individual who registered for only the case study component in 2005 and failed will be required to complete the 90 hours prior to registering for the Intermediate Exam in the future.
    You will be exempt from the 90 mentorship hours only if you successfully completed at least one component of the Intermediate Exam prior to 2005 but still have to complete the remaining component(s).
  • Example 2: An individual who registered for the case and the written components in 2005 and failed the case only, would be exempt from the 90 hours.

Advanced Exam Requirements

You must complete the 60 Mentorship hours prior to registering for the Advanced Exam if you have not yet attempted the Advanced Exam.

You will be exempt from the 60 mentorship hours only if you attempted the Advanced Exams prior to 2005 and were unsuccessful.
