Provisional registration

New graduates who meet all other eligibility criteria but are still working towards completing the entry-to-practice exam can apply for provisional registration with CPPEI.

Provisional registrants shall work under the supervision of a general registrant of the same professional level or higher until they meet the examination requirement.

After a provisional registrant successfully completes the entry-to-practice exam for their professional level, the Registrar may grant them the general registrant status.

Provisional registration cannot be reinstated and may be renewed only once.
