Yes. Candidates who wrote the FPSC Level 1 exam prior to 2020, but were unsuccessful, may challenge the QAFP exam after completing IPE as a prerequisite, beginning with the June 2020 QAFP exam, subject to education currency and exam attempt limits.
Candidates may attempt the QAFP exam a maximum of four times (including any previous FPSC Level 1 examination attempts).
Candidates must pass the QAFP exam within four years of completion of either an FP Canada-Approved Core Curriculum program or IPE, whichever comes first. Candidates who are unsuccessful after four attempts or within four years of their first attempt must requalify by successfully completing or repeating QAFP PEP, regardless of previous exemptions granted. Requalification will allow the candidate up to four more attempts of the QAFP exam and will reset the four-year time limit.
Regular application guidelines, including completion of the examination application and agreement to abide by all examination policies, remain in effect for all attempts.
