The CSCN is currently planning to proceed with an in-person on-site exam as it has in prior years. The precise dates and format will depend upon the status of the pandemic, progress with vaccinations, restrictions around gathering and travel, and other factors that are not currently known. We ask that candidates hold two long weekends in reserve for this exam: June 25-27 and September 17 -19. More information will be forthcoming as we know it.

The CSCN EMG exam is still planned for Summer 2021. We have carried over applications from those who applied for the 2020 exam and will be accepting new applications for 2021. While the examination focus and content will be similar to prior years, we have not yet determined the final examination format. This will need to be determined as the pandemic and recovery unfolds further. More information will be coming as plans evolve.
