Exam booking with BCRPA approved External Proctor

Here is how to set up an individual exam booking with a BCRPA approved external proctor.

BCRPA’s mandate is to separate education from evaluation, so they require that approved proctors have no relationships with the exam candidates, nor any relationships with those who provide fitness education. Thus, Trainers of Fitness Leaders (TFLs), and friends and family members of TFLs, are excluded from acting as proctors. Also excluded are employees of the TFL and/or his/her company.

External exam proctors can ONLY be one of these listed professions. Exams can ONLY take place at a professional setting, such as places of business, public service facilities and educational institutions. No private homes will be approved. One application is required PER exam sitting.

Here is a list of approved proctors:

  • doctors,
  • registered nurses,
  • engineers,
  • lawyers,
  • accountants,
  • notaries,
  • librarians,
  • university and college faculty and instructors,
  • high school teachers,
  • school principals and vice principals,and
  • the clergy

Your chosen proctor must fill out and submit the following application:  Fitness Theory Proctored Exam Application

Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for processing.  Incomplete applications will NOT be processed.
