Credential Self-Evaluation Tool

This is a great opportunity for you to find out how and if your credentials compare to requirements. It’s the same tool used by our trained CADTR credential evaluators when they’re assessing your transcripts, syllabi, experiential hours and overall knowledge.

The Credential Self-Evaluation Tool covers all program areas, course content areas and course content descriptors. Completing it can help identify your own strengths and areas for improvement. Keep in mind it’s not always 100% accurate due to the subjective nature of self-assessments. You will still need to apply for credentialing and evaluation by a CADTR credential evaluator.
