When do you have to register for the examination?

Once you complete your training program:


  • your educational institution will notify the OIIQ that you have successfully completed the program;
  • the Order will then email you the information you need to register for the examination.


You must register for the professional examination each time you are notified. You have up to two years and three tries to pass it.


If you feel that your specific circumstances are justification for not registering for the examination (e.g., if you obtained your diploma outside Quebec and were granted equivalence less than 90 days before the date of the professional examination), see the not registered, absence or failure page.
