Can I bring an interpreter to the exam?

Yes, interpreters are permitted. Please contact the Exam Department at 905-712-5385 or Masters.Exam@electricalsafety.on.ca to set up a private exam date.

Any individual requiring an Interpreter during the Master Electrician Exam must send the Interpreter Attendance Request for Master Electrician Exam form in order to arrange for a private exam session. Scheduling and Fees associated with organizing an interpreter are at the expense of the requesting individual. 

PLEASE NOTE: ESA does not supply interpreters or have a list of preferred interpreters. Exam takers are encouraged to do their own research to find a suitable interpreter, who meets the following criteria: 

  1. Either OCCI (Ontario Coalition for Community Interpreters) accredited or ATIO (Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario) certified; 
  2. Holds a valid (not expired) certification/accreditation and able to produce it to ESA; 
  3. Not in a conflict of interest with the test taker; and 
  4. Available for the exam date assigned by ESA.
