Prior Learning Assessment
CSMLS provides a single point of access for prior learning assessment to internationally educated medical laboratory technologists who are seeking Canadian certification.
The PLA process evaluates academic credentials, language proficiency, clinical training and work experience. Trained assessors from the CSMLS are responsible for evaluating work experience and clinical training. Evaluation of language proficiency and academic credentials are conducted by other agencies.
CSMLS does not receive funding from governments or regulatory bodies for providing prior learning assessment services. Clients are currently charged a fee. However, fees cover only a portion of the total cost of administering and maintaining the PLA process. The process is subsidized by CSMLS members through annual dues.
