CBRC Exam Communique

The summer session of the CBRC exam (initially scheduled for July 9) will now be delivered on either August 13 or August 27, 2018.

The following is a short communique to Graduate Members of the CRTO who are writing the CBRC exam in August.

EXAMINATION RESULTS

When you receive your CBRC exam results, please note that you must send a copy of the results letter to the CRTO. This can be done by:

  • Email: walsh@crto.on.ca;
  • Fax: 416-591-7890; or
  • Mail: 180 Dundas Street West, Suite 2103, Toronto, ON, M5G 1Z8.

CHANGE FROM GRADUATE (GRT) TO GENERAL (RRT) CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION

The change from Graduate to General Certificate does not happen automatically.

To receive your General Certificate of Registration, you must ensure that we receive a copy of your CBRC exam results letter (see above), and that your application file is complete (e.g., your official transcript of academic record is on file).

It may take up to two weeks for the General Certificate to be issued. We will email you to let you know when your General Certificate is issued.

NOTE: you are not authorized to use the “Registered Respiratory Therapist” title and/or the RRT designation in Ontario until after your General Certificate of Registration has been issued.

EXAM RE-WRITES – AFTER FAILING THREE OR MORE TIMES

Graduate Members are initially allowed up to three (3) attempts to write the exam. Exam candidates who fail the exam 3 or more times are not be eligible to write the exam again unless they submit to the CRTO a study plan for approval. The study plan should be based on the CRTO’s Study Plan Guide (SPG).

18-MONTH CERTIFICATE EXPIRY

Graduate Members have 18 months to complete the examination requirement. A Graduate Certificate of Registration is a temporary one and is automatically revoked after 18 months. It is the policy of the Registration Committee not to re-issue Graduate Certificates of Registration.
