photo identification

Government-Issued Photo ID is required for all students at the Testing Centre. The Government-Issued Photo ID must be no more than 5 years old. School-issued photo ID will not be accepted in the Testing Centre.

An Alberta photo identification card (ID card) is available to Alberta residents who do not or cannot hold a valid Alberta operator's licence. The ID card is clearly marked for identification purposes only. The minimum age to obtain an ID card is 12 years old. Applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to provide consent. The ID card is issued for on a 1 to 5 year term. The fees range from $14 (one year) to $49 (five years).

To obtain an ID card, you must apply at any Alberta Registry agent offices. You must also provide acceptable identification to verify your identity and documents to prove Alberta residency. 

online testing

Online testing is now available in some non-diploma level courses. This gives students the flexibility and convenience to write their midterm and final exams from home. Students will use remote proctor software with their computer's webcam to securely write their exams.

There is a nominal fee per exam (paid directly to the exam proctoring service), however, many students find this worthwhile given the convenience and savings on travel costs. Students will want to ask their individual teachers if this is an option in their courses.
