CSMLS Certification Exam Update: Remotely Proctored Testing

The CSMLS Certification Department is pleased to announce that we have been able to add Remotely Proctored Testing (RPT), a reliable, secure online Exam writing option with our testing partner, Prometric, to pilot for the June 2020 exam session. This allows us to mitigate COVID-19 issues and restrictions being felt by our Exam candidates across the country.

CSMLS candidates now have the choice to test wherever in Canada it is most convenient to them for their registered exam date.

This is a hybrid model, allowing CSMLS candidates their choice of testing modes, in-person or virtual, acknowledging individual preferences and maintaining our high testing standards, without compromising CSMLS candidate safety or slowing their entry into the workforce.

If you are registered for one of our exam sessions, you will be able to schedule/reschedule your testing seat to RPT on a first-come-first-serve basis, at



Registration is open to candidates who have successfully completed, or will successfully complete, an EQual™ accredited Medical Laboratory educational program 14 days to 12 months prior to the Exam they register for.

For a list of EQual™ accredited Medical Laboratory educational programs please see.

Registration is open to all PLA clients who have received a Statement of Eligibility to the CSMLS National Certification Exam, as listed on their statement, providing the Eligibility Statement is not expired.

All candidates will be verified as eligible to the Exam prior to the Exam they have registered for. If you are found ineligible to the Exam and your registration is cancelled, you may lose that attempt (considered a fail) and you may receive a partial or no refund, depending on timing. For our cancellation policy, please see below.
