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.
