    Do you plan on asking the Humber and Centennial to evaluate your transcript to see if you qualify for exemption?

It looks like it takes 6 months to complete the part time program through Centennial.

    Yes, I plan to check whether an exemption will be the best option but if would take more than 6 months to be evaluated, I'd rather try my luck with other alternative. Thanks.

    Hi Jeannette
    I think my post was confusing, I should have said, I don't know how long ti takes or how much it costs for Centennial and Humber to evaluate your previous OR certificate for equivalency. The process may be quick and inexpensive, or it may be time consuming and expensive, check with Centennial and Humber, they will advise you of the process.
    The 6 months, I referred to in my previous post, is the time it appears to take to complete the part time OR program at Centennial.

    Do you have any idea how long to get a certificate? or it will took 6 months?
    Well judging fromt he website from centennial college... about a year?? They don't seem to get into specifics. But I wonder if the length of the program might change depending on the school.
