Dear {%CLIENT: First Name%} {%CLIENT: Last Name%},

We are in receipt of your application form. Please remember that for an application to be considered complete the College requires, not only the application form, but all supporting documentation and payment as well. Note the application processing payment is none refundable and is not a part of the fee that will be paid to Yardstick.

At this point you have received an email with the subject heading “Thank you for registering”. It is extremely important that you retain the information within that email as it contains, the hyperlink that you will use, as well as the username and password you generated to log into the College's portal.


The next step is to upload the documentation that supports your application. You may do this now by clicking on the “Members Home” tab above, or if you want to return later you may use the hyperlink in the “Thank you for registering” email. Remember the documentation that must be uploaded includes:


  • Proof of Legal Name: Government issued birth certificate, marriage license or Legal Affidavit, or affirmation of name.
  • Proof of Identification: This may be a copy of your driver’s license or passport, or other government issued photo identification.
  • Confirmation of Program Completion: The educational institution must send a copy of diploma, transcript or a letter indicating program completion.
  • Photo: Self taken and includes a view of your head to your shoulders.
  • Electronic copy of the Provincial Entry to Practice Examination Application


Once the College has received your completed application, and payment, it will be reviewed and if complete will be approved by the College and forwarded to the Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators and Yardstick seven (7) weeks in advance of the exam date.


Then, four (4) weeks before the exam date, Yardstick, will contact you to obtain your exam fee and to confirm the date and location of the exam.
