National Professional Practice Examination


The National Professional Practice Examination (NPPE) confirms knowledge of professionalism, law, and ethics. Fourteen engineering and geoscience self-regulatory organizations in Canada currently use the NPPE as one of their requirements for licensure. The NPPE follows all relevant standards detailed in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing to ensure that the exam program is valid, reliable, and fair (psychometrically defensible).

The exam is computer-based and is administered through Meazure Learning, which is a merged partnership between Yardstick, a Canadian computer-based testing vendor, and ProctorU, an online remote proctoring service.
