This five question Competency Based Self-Assessment Tool will only take a few minutes to complete.  It serves as a guideline to assist applicants in determining which Admission Program entry stream is most applicable to their background.  Upon review of your application, the BCSLA will determine if you satisfy the necessary requirements and will contact you to provide feedback.

We recommend that you review the Bridge to Licensure Flow Chart and the Step-By-Step Guide before you apply for membership.  Should you have any questions please contact the BCSLA office for assistance.
