National Exams: PCP and ACP

A licensing exam is a requirement for all new PCP and ACP applicants for registration with SCoP, except for those who are licensed in another province

Registration forms must be received before 4 p.m. on the day they are due. SCoP will send a confirmation email when we receive your form.

To Register:
Sign in to your SCoP Member Account and submit the Exam Registration form found under the Applications tab. Registration forms must be received by SCoP before 4 p.m. on the day they are due.

If you are unable to open the Exam Registration form and receive an error message, go to the Applications tab and fill out the Initial Applicant form. Once you submit this form, others will unlock. If you continue to receive an error message, please contact us to have your application form reset.

The exam fee is $650 + PST and is not collected by SCoP. IMPORTANT: One to two weeks before the exam, registered examinees will be contacted by email with instructions for payment and the exam logistics.

The national exam is a computer-based multiple choice exam based on the 2011 National Occupation Competency Profile (NOCP). It will not include any Saskatchewan jurisprudence at this time. A jurisprudence exam may become a requirement for initial applicants in the future.

The Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators (COPR) administers this national exam. Download the COPR National Examination handbook, or visit for more information. COPR also has practice exams available for purchase from their website.

Exam results will be communicated to the College once they have been finalized by COPR, and will be emailed to you (pass or fail; no marks will be given to applicants). The passing mark for the exam will be set using the Angoff method. Further information can be obtained in the COPR National Examination handbook.
