CAASPR Introduces National Entry-to-Practice Examinations

  The Canadian Alliance of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Regulators (CAASPR) is pleased to announce the introduction of a national entry-to-practice examination as a necessary, non-exemptible condition of licensure. The examinations, with an anticipated first administration in the fall of 2020, will be based on essential competency profiles recently adopted by the CAASPR Board of Directors. Recognizing that the introduction of entry-to-practice examinations represents a paradigm shift in provincial assessment and admission processes, CAASPR and its member regulators will be providing regular updates to both current and prospective registrants on how the new, currently-named “Canadian Entry to Practice Examination (CETP)”, may impact current and future registration. Details have yet to be determined, however, after implementation of the CETP Examination, the following general principles will apply: All SLPs and AUDs who are registered in regulated jurisdictions at the time the CETP Examination is launched will not be required to pass the CETP Examination to maintain licensure;   SLPs and AUDs who are not registered with a provincial regulator and who wish to work in a regulated province will be required to write the CETP Examination to qualify for licensure;   Individuals, looking for additional information on current and future registration requirements in Manitoba are encouraged to contact the College of Audiologists and Speech – Language Pathologists of Manitoba.   Read the CAASPR announcement on the national...
