More information

Application periods

The application periods for these examinations are to be finalised. These dates will be advertised on the ADC website once available.

Candidates with pending initial assessment applications

Please note that candidates are allowed to apply for the written examination even if their initial assessment or renewal application was received by the ADC on or before 31 October 2021, but is still in the queue for processing. The ADC team is working through all pending applications to ensure they are assessed in time to allow candidates to sit the March 2022 Written Examination.

IMPORTANT: in order to sit the written examination candidates must have a valid initial assessment. If a candidate’s initial assessment or renewal application is assessed as ineligible or incomplete after the written examination application period, their registration for the written examination will be cancelled and a full refund will be provided.

How to apply

The ADC is revising its application process. More information on how to apply for the written and practical examinations will be available via the ADC website once this review is complete.

In fairness to all candidates, we cannot consider applications received outside the application period, or from candidates not meeting the eligibility criteria.

Partial or incomplete applications are not accepted. We must receive your completed application and payment before the closing date of the application period. We strongly encourage you to thoroughly check all requirements before submitting your application. 

Information regarding the written examination (relevant to your profession) is available on the ADC website and within the associated examination handbooks. The handbooks can be found on the assessment publications page.

Additional information

Future written and practical examination application periods and examination dates will be announced via the ADC website as information is available. 

The ADC is committed to keeping all candidates updated on the written and practical examination as well as important information relating to the assessment process. All candidates, regardless of their place in the assessment process, are strongly encouraged to monitor the ADC website for the most up-to-date information.
