Step 1: Qualifying Examination Initial Application

Individuals who wish to attempt the Qualifying Examination for the first time are required to create an online profile and complete the online QE Initial Application, including payment of any applicable fees.

Individuals who have received their relevant education outside of Canada must submit a request for academic program assessment with the QE Initial Application.  Upon receipt of this request and required supporting documentation, the Registration Committee examines the academic program to determine if it is fundamentally equivalent to the program of study undertaken by individuals who receive a diploma in denturism from George Brown College.


Link to start your online Initial Application and create an online profile: 


  • QE Online Initial Application

    Please only complete this application once. You can return to your profile and update any information as necessary. Accidentally creating duplicate profiles will result in delays processing your application.

Required supporting documents to complete your Initial Application:

Scanned copies of the documents below (except for school transcripts and third party credential assessment report) can be uploaded directly onto the online profile:

  1. One Notarized copy of a valid government issued identification:
    • Either a notarized copy of your Passport, Permanent Resident Card, Valid Work Permit, Driver's License, Ontario Photo ID Card, or Birth Certificate. 
    • A notarized copy of a Canadian Passport, Permanent Resident Card, or Valid Work Permit is preferred as it will be required after you successfully pass the qualifying examinations and register for your license.
  2. Two Passport Photos taken within the last 12 months
  3. Third Party Credential Assessment e.g. WES or ICAS report, please select the comprehensive report that includes your school transcripts and diploma awarded. (please review the Credential Authentication Policy for details). 
    • Please note, credential assessment reports used for immigration purposes is not suitable and cannot be reused. Please select the comprehensive report that documents educational equivalency.
  4. Academic Assessment Form can be completed and uploaded onto the online portal.

Academic Equivalency Assessment

In addition to the QE Initial Application outlined above, the following documentation is required for an Academic Equivalency Assessment:
  1. Form A1 - Academic Assessment Form (instructions included)
  2. Official course descriptions/outlines/syllabi.
  3. Third Party Credential Assessment. (please review the Credential Authentication Policy for details)

The results of the academic assessment are provided in writing approximately 4-6 weeks after the date a complete application is submitted. Individuals whose academic programs are deemed equivalent are then eligible to sit the next Qualifying Examination. If the Registration Committee determines that the educational program of an individual is not equivalent to a diploma in denturism offered by George Brown College, the Committee will provide the individual with recommendations that, once completed, will assist in meeting academic equivalency.  

Step 2: Qualifying Examination Registration

Following notification that the Qualifying Examination Initial Application has been approved, a candidate may register to take the Qualifying Examination.
