Useful information

You may bring the exam preparation manuals sold by the AMF, and any updates, into the examination room. However, only manuals corresponding to the skill (competency) evaluated will be authorized during the exam session.


Adding material such as Post-it notes or sheets of paper to AMF manuals is prohibited other than for use as separators.


Notes may be written on pages in the manual, but only if they correspond to the topic being covered by those pages. Notes must be written in English or French. Also, you may not copy any exercises.


In order to respect copyright, candidates who bring photocopied, counterfeit, modified or altered copies of AMF manuals to exam sessions will be asked to leave (for example, cutting the original binding and inserting the pages into a binder, or otherwise binding them, is considered an alteration). In addition, candidates will be assigned a grade of “0” and their manuals will be confiscated.
