Students will cover current practices and test procedures in preparation for the exam. Students should contact the BCWWA to confirm their eligibility for this course. Contact information can be found at www.bcwwa.org/. Registration is required two-weeks prior to the beginning of first day of class. Students need to register first for this course at BCIT and pay their tuition to confirm their seat. They then need to register for the exam with the BCWWA and pay the exam fee.
