The Online Self- Assessment (OSA) will give you insight into the medical laboratory practice in Canada and your readiness for the Canadian workforce. There is no minimum passing score. Your OSA score and report are for your information only and CSMLS will not use them to decide your PLA result.
This test will give you valuable information to help you decide whether to pursue Canadian certification. It will provide you with feedback and help you to identify areas in which you may need more education.
You must complete the 100 question test before you apply for PLA. Your username from the OSA must be sent in, along with your completed rating booklet with your PLA application. There is a fee for the OSA, so we suggest completing the competency rating booklet first.
