Equivalency Exam

COVID-19 UPDATE:  During the ongoing outbreak, we will be temporarily allowing the proctoring of exams by outside sources for those living in the lower mainland.   Please direct all questions to scoles@ibabc.org

Registration Process:
  1. Complete the pre-registration form (this page), and submit it
  2. Retain the reference number from the confirmation page for your records. Captus Press will also send you a confirmation email containing the pre-registration information
  3. If the exam is to be written outside the Lower Mainland, fill out and fax the Proctor Registration form to IBABC.
  4. IBABC will, upon receiving this form and your Proctor Registration form, approve your registration.
  5. Upon IBABC approval, Captus Press will process your payment of $295.00.
  6. Once payment has been processed, you will be sent an email with a login code for the exam. Your proctor will also receive their code via email.  Should you not receive the email, you may also retrieve your exam login from the Confirmation page that appears after you register. You will need to add that page to your favourites in order to do this.
