You may reschedule your CBA up to 48 hours in advance of your scheduled session by visiting www.prometric.com and paying the applicable administrative fee directly to Prometric. If you wish to reschedule 48 hours or less in advance of your scheduled session, you must contact NCAS at
CBA Rescheduling Fee (more than 48 hours before your scheduled assessment date): US $35 (payable directly to Prometric. Contact www.prometric.com)
CBA Rescheduling Fee and No Show (on or fewer than 48 hours before your scheduled assessment date): CAD $150 (payable directly to NCAS. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org). If you fail to appear on the scheduled CBA assessment date and time, you must pay the full CAD $150 when reschduling your assessment.
The rescheduling fees and options vary for the Simulation Lab Assessment/Oral Assessment. Please read carefully, as the fees for rescheduling can be very steep.
You have one year to complete the entire NCAS assessment process from the date upon which the regulator or registry referred you. If you feel you will take longer than one year to complete the NCAS assessment process, please contact the appropriate regulator or registry to seek an extension. If the regulator or registry approves your request for an extension, NCAS will extend your timeline AND charge you $250.
You may request a reconsideration of your Simulation Lab and Oral Assessment results. A fee applies. A reconsideration involves an assessor who did NOT perform your original assessment. The new assessor views all four of the videos that were recorded during your original SLA/OA session. The assessor then scores your performance on each scenario independently. A new report that combines your original computer-based assessment scores, and your new SLA/OA scores, will be prepared. Reconsideration results may appear lower in some thematic competency areas than the results applicants originally received.
NCAS does NOT allow applicants to re-take the SLA/OA or the CBA, except in exceptional circumstances where a candidate has been re-referred by the regulator or registry. If exceptional circumstances apply, please contact the regulator or registry that referred you. New fees will be applied.
