1. Licensing Exam
All new applicants must successfully complete the licensing exam. See Licensing Exam Info to register for your exam. Applicants who have not yet completed the exam may apply for a restricted licence at an additional cost. Members with a restricted licence may work under the direct supervision of an unrestricted member at their licence level or higher as they wait to pass their exam. More info on restricted licences >
