English Language Recommendation Requirements
Candidates for the CSNM Exam are encouraged to demonstrate proficiency in English. Effective oral and written skills are standard job description requirements for a Nutrition Manager in all sectors of our professional practice.
There are several possible methods that an exam candidate could attain this proficiency:
Grade 12 College/University stream English credit from an Ontario Secondary School.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) test with a minimum score of 550 for the paper- based test (PBT) or 79 for the Internet-based test (iTB).
International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test with an overall score of 6.0 with no score less than 5.5 in any of the four bands.
Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) test with an overall score of 60 with no score less than 50 in any of the four bands.
An English Language Evaluation test from an Ontario Accredited College with a minimum score of 70%.
Note: The exam candidate is responsible to make arrangements for this testing, as it is a recommendation not a requirement for the CSNM examination process.
