Canadian Entry-to-Practice Exam For Audiology and Speech Language Pathology

The Canadian Alliance of Audiology and Speech – Language Regulators (CAASPR) have been working diligently towards developing and implementing a centralized competency based Canadian Entry to Practice (CETP) Exam.  All new graduate applicants and internationally educated applicants seeking licensure in Manitoba will be required to write the CETP Exam as one part of the licensing process for the College of Audiologists and Speech – Language Pathologists of Manitoba (the College). The exam will be used by multiple provinces and will be a consistent tool in ensuring that all applicants are assessed to sit the exam based on the standard academic equivalency framework.

As such, the College requires that you proceed with an application to sit the CAASPR CETP Exam. Please visit the CAASPR  website to begin your first phase of the registration process; If you are approved to sit the CAASPR CETP Exam, CASLPM must receive your proof of eligibility as part of your CASLPM application and this will begin the second phase of the registration process.

The CETP exam will be based on the CAASPR National Competency Profiles. The Competencies were developed over a lengthy period by working groups composed of new and experienced audiologists and speech-language pathologists, educators, regulators, representatives of Speech-Language and Audiology Canada and Canadian Academy of Audiology, and expert consultants. CAASPR has also provided blueprints for the CETP Exam. To view the National Competency Profiles and the CETP Exam Blueprints please click here.

Due to disruptions arising from the COVID-19 public health crisis, CAASPR has made the difficult decision to postpone the planned sitting of the CETP Exam previously scheduled for October 3, 2020. CAASPR will be announcing, as soon as reasonably possible, the new examination schedule through its website and portal at CAASPR.
