Pan-Canadian Entry-Level Exam Prep Program

The purpose of the program is to help current students or graduates of Acupuncture, Herbology, or Practitioner of Oriental Medicine programs prepare for the Pan-Canadian Entry-Level Examination*. The approach of this program is to review didactic components of Traditional Chinese Medicine and to develop the competencies required for the exam through material review, question & answer sessions, advanced questions and critical thinking, and discussions. This program does not require approval by Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training.  As such, PTIB did not review this program.

* Pan-Canadian Entry-Level Exam is developed by College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA) to assess the graduates of TCM programs for the necessary competencies that meet the requirements of the Registration Regulation and the Entry-Level Occupational Competencies for the Practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Canada.
