EPPP FAQ's

What do I need to do to take the EPPP?

Apply for a license in the state, province or territory in which you wish to practice. Your licensing authority will enter your information into the EPPP Application System, and you will receive an automatic email with login instructions for the registration portal. You will need to complete two steps in this system; the Candidate Acknowledgement Form and the EPPP Application Form. 4 to 8 hours after these two steps are completed, you will receive an automatic Authorization To Test email with login instructions for Pearson VUE, where you will pay for and schedule your exam.

What if my name is spelled incorrectly, my name has recently been changed or my name does not match my IDs?

Please contact your licensing authority to request a name correction. Your licensing authority will then contact ASPPB to process this change. Make sure that the required two forms of identification you present at the test center match the first and last name on your EPPP application.
