Certification Fees

The following fees apply for certification processing, examinations, and renewals.

Application & Examination Fees

The application fee (for either the CRSP® or CRST certification) is $525.00. This fee is non-refundable and must be paid prior to application assessment.

If an applicant is applying under one of the Memorandum of Understanding application routes, the application fee is $75.00. This fee is non-refundable and must be paid prior to application review.

If approved by the BCRSP as eligible to write a certification examination, for each examination attempt, a fee of $175.00 is paid upon examination scheduling. This fee may be refunded if the examination appointment is cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled appointment date and time. 

Certification Fees

Upon approval of certification the first annual fee is payable and the amount is pro-rated (from the base rate of $300) based on the approval date.

Annually, all practicing certificants must pay $300.00 to renew their certification by February 28 each year. A late processing fee applies after February 28. Failure to renew means that the certification is not in good standing and you may no longer claim to be certified by the BCRSP as a CRSP® or CRST. 

All fees are subject to GST/HST and are in Canadian dollars.
