Why we need the information in these forms

The information provided by applicants helps us to know that:

  • they are who they say they are;
  • they meet our standards; and
  • we can contact them if we need to.



Please note, we recommend reading the standards of proficiency, standards of conduct, performance and ethics and our standards for continuing professional development before filling out these forms.
