Registering for AMF exams

The registration process consists of 2 steps:

Step 1: Obtain authorization to register for examinations

The application for authorization to register for examinations enables the AMF to validate a candidate’s eligibility to write the examinations required for professional certification.

The registration authorization application is valid for only one sector or sector class. Candidates seeking authorization to register for exams in several sectors or sector classes must complete an application for each one.

To obtain authorization to register for an exam, the candidate must, among other things, meet the qualifications corresponding to the chosen sector or sector class and provide valid proof of Canadian identity.

When applying for authorization to register for examinations, the candidate must also agree to uphold the confidentiality of examination content.

Once the application for registration authorization has been processed and the required fees paid, the candidate will receive authorization to register for the exams.

Step 2: Select an exam date and an exam

Before you can complete your registration by selecting your preferred exam, language, location and writing date, you must obtain authorization to register for an exam.

To register for AMF exams, you must choose:

  • the location;
  • the language;
  • the writing date; and
  • the writing time.

You may choose, by paying the applicable fees only once, to spread the examinations over a maximum of 90 days starting from the date the application to register is submitted. To be eligible:

  • All exam writing dates must be indicated on the same application;
  • There should be no more than 90 days between the date the application to register is submitted and the last date of examinations.
  • Payment of required fees must have been received for all examinations to be written.

Registration fees apply each time you submit a new application or the 90-day period expires.

When your application has been processed, a notice of examination will be mailed out to you. Check this notice carefully to ensure that the skills being evaluated, as well as the exam date, location and language match your selections. If you notice an error or you have questions, contact the Information Centre immediately. Keep this notice, as you will be required to present it to the supervisors in order to be admitted to the examination room.

You will receive a document entitled Examination Rules along with your notice of examination. This document sets out the conditions and procedure for taking exams. It is important that you read this document since, under section 27 of the Regulation respecting the issuance and renewal of representatives’ certificates, a candidate is considered to have failed an examination if he fails to comply with the instructions given during the examination session.
