A Provisional Certificate of Qualification holder may be granted a six-month extension after submitting an application form, if the
Registrar is satisfied that extenuating circumstances outside the individual’s control prevented them from scheduling or writing
the certifying examination in the trade.
Extenuating circumstances include, without limitation, the existence of any barrier within the meaning of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and circumstances where the certifying examinations cannot be administered for technical or operational reasons.
Your application for a 6-month extension:
You can still attempt the certifying examination even if your Provisional Certificate of Qualification has expired.
By signing below, I declare that since the issuance of the Certificate of Apprenticeship in my trade, extenuating circumstances,
outside of my control, have prevented me from scheduling or writing the certifying examination in my trade. I acknowledge that if I
fail to provide the requested information or documents or provide false or misleading information or documents to Skilled Trades
Ontario, my extension may be refused, and I may be subject to other consequences or proceedings under BOSTA.
