Rescheduling an exam • $50 + tax.  If an exam needs to be rescheduled with less than 5 business days notice, a $50 + tax fee will apply.  No fee will be charged to reschedule an exam providing that at least 5 business days advance notice is given. 

Exam challenge or proficiency test• $150 + tax.  Individuals who feel they have proficiency in the subject matter may choose to pay $150 + tax per course and take BC Builder Training's 3rd party proctored qualification (core competency) exam.  Students will not be provided access to any of the course materials in order to prepare for the exam.  The challenge exam was developed specifically for BC Builder Training's course content which aligns with BC Housing's learning outcomes for the subject area.  A minimum of 5 business days notice prior to the exam date is required to schedule an exam.

Exam challenge participants will only be given one opportunity to pass the challenge exam with a minimum passing grade of 70% or greater. In addition to receiving course credit, an individual who successfully completes the  challenge exam will also receive a $150 credit towards the next BC Builder Training course they complete.  Only one course credit can be applied towards the tuition of another course.  The course credit is valid for 12 months.   No other challenge exam rewrites are permitted.  (An exception to this policy will be granted only to those individuals who receive a grade between 65% - 69% on the challenge exam.  They will be allowed a second challenge exam rewrite for a fee of $50 + tax.   However, they will not receive the $150 credit towards another course.)

Third party exam proctoring locations are available throughout the province. Participants will need to make arrangements with a proctor testing location to have the online exam proctored. The cost of the proctor is not included in the cost of the exam challenge. Participants will need to pay the proctor directly for their services. Please click here to see the list of the current approved proctoring locations.
