ACCLXT Provincial Examination

The credentialing of professionals requires an assessment of a candidate’s professional competence. The ACCLXT Provincial Examination is a means by which the College can assess the knowledge, skills and attitudes of candidates and assure the public that all individuals registered as CLXT’s have met the entry-level standard of practice. The Provincial Registration Examination is required by Alberta Government legislation.

In order to be eligible for the ACCLXT Active register, all students/candidates must challenge and achieve a "pass" mark on the ACCLXT Provincial Examination.
