Application Guides & Forms

All new applicants must provide evidence they meet the set requirements by completing all necessary documentation.

The application and accompanying documentation must be sent to COTBC by mail or email. Once your application has been reviewed and entered you will be contacted regarding payment. Use the Registrant Application Checklist (found at the back of the New Registrant Application Form) to ensure your application is complete, including all signatures, forms, required documentation and payment. This will facilitate the timely processing of your application.

Once the College has received all required documentation, applications are typically processed within seven days.
