PA Cert Exam

PA Cert Exam (PACE) is administered independently of any training facility to ensure that the PA meets the standard set out in the CanMEDS-PA and EPA-PA for the PA profession.

Upon successful completion of the PACE, a candidate is awarded CAPA’s certification designation Canadian Certified Physician Assistant (CCPA).

CAPA and PACCC aim to reassure regulators, employers and the public that a PA who holds the CCPA certification designation has met the national standards established by the profession.

In order to register for the PACE you MUST be a CAPA member (Regular, New Graduate, Sustained, PA Student, International PA and International PA Student).

Registration for the April 2024 exam is now closed.

Registration for the 14 October 2024 exam will open on 22 July 2024.
