Phase One takes place in a classroom setting. This four-day seminar features a series of lectures, demonstrations, and discussions based on the procedures and assessment criteria of RCM Examinations.
Phase Two takes place at the Examination centre. Over a period of three examination sessions, apprentice examiners work with mentor examiners. Apprentice examiners have an opportunity to participate in the examination process and to practice examining. At the end of each session, apprentice examiners are provided with a written evaluation of their progress.
Phase One is an orientation session to describe the structure and organization of theory examinations. Each apprentice examiner is assigned to a mentor examiner who will supervise their work over the course of their training.
Phase Two offers hands-on marking experience in a supervised setting. Over a period of three examination sessions, apprentices work with their mentor to mark a limited number of theory papers. Mentors provide ongoing feedback and evaluation to apprentice examiners during this period. Attendance of theory examiner workshops and marking meetings is required.
NOTE: Theory workshops and marking meetings take place several times per year in the Greater Toronto Area. Attendance is mandatory.
