Accessing Your Information On Line
ABSA has developed an internet website that will allow Power Engineers and In-Service
Inspectors access to their information that is securely stored with ABSA.
To obtain your internet access you will need to provide
a written request with your picture ID verified by ABSA staff. This can be done when
you write an examination or at the reception desk in an ABSA office. A
current email address is required. Once
your application has been processed, a start-up PIN will be sent to the email
address you provide. Log-in access
is located in the top right hand column of the ABSA Home
Page and also located in the right hand column of this page.
When you first access the site, you will be required to change your PIN. Your
ID and PIN will be required every time you sign on to the
information pages. It is your responsibility
to keep logon information confidential.
You will be able to see your personal information, exams taken, results achieved,
scheduled examination dates, certificates held and certificate expiry date. You
will be able to submit changes to your personal information. Changes
to your name or date of birth will still need additional verification, with copies
of appropriate certification provided to the ABSA office. You
can also renew your certificate and apply for examinations.
Please note that once you have activated your account online, you will ONLY receive
certificates, receipts and renewal cards via the postal service. All other notifications
will be sent electronically to the email address we have on file.
If you have trouble logging in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Examination Results and Scheduling Notifications
When you have online access sign-on, you will be able to obtain the result and scheduling
letters online. You will be notified
by email that your account has updated information and ABSA will not be mailing
out notification of examinations or results.
of Competency Renewals
Your renewal notification will be emailed to you and you can renew your certificate
online. If your renew online, your renewal cards will be mailed out to
you. If you do not wish to renew online, please submit the form AB-73.
Online Examination Application Information
Before you can apply online for an examination, you must have submitted the required
information and received approval to write.
These are the requirements:
1. Education: you
must be at the correct high school grade level for the examination required or have
course completion. Provide ABSA with
an official high school transcript with the relevant information, if necessary.
2. Experience: you
need to provide ABSA with the correct level of work experience to qualify. See the
Power Engineers Regulation for requirements.
3. You must hold a certificate of
competency one class lower than the one applied for.
Once you have submitted your application online you will receive an email when your
examination has been scheduled. You can then view and print your confirmation letter
from within the Exams tab.
A non-refundable/non-transferable scheduling fee of $97.00 per paper is required with your application. There is no guarantee you will be scheduled for the dates you choose. First received, first scheduled.
Penalty Rules: If you are under penalty due to failures, you can apply to write your
examination on a date after the penalty expires. You will not be able to schedule
more than 1 examination because that may place you in a penalty again.
