The College is required to hold an annual professional exam. The exam is not intended to restrict membership or to prevent any member from joining the College as a Regulated Forest Professional Technologist, but is a forum for members to demonstrate their academic knowledge as a forestry practitioner. Members must write the professional exam within 12 months of being placed on the Conditional Register.

The exam is comprised multiple areas to test members familiarity with legislation relevant to the practice of forestry. There are several mandatory questions that challenge member’s knowledge of the College By-laws, membership requirements, the Continuing Competency Program, and the Code of Conduct. The remaining sections will test members knowledge of the regulatory legislation and approval processes required for activity on public land.

The exam questions are not designed or based on any post-secondary curriculum, as we are not testing your retention of the lessons attended in college. The exam is structured to provide a challenging opportunity for both generalists and specialists. If you are scheduled to write the exam in any given year, you will be notified by the College of the scheduled date.


CAPFT and CAPF have a memorandum of understanding between the exam committee’s from both colleges to work together to jointly deliver a professional examination to members of both colleges. A link to the Joint Professional Exam Committee (JPEC)’s exam policy and procedures is provided below. Information sessions to help you prepare for you exam are offered prior to each exam writing and are open to members of either college.
