The MQE is written after completion of CBV Institute’s Program of Studies.
The MQE tests a candidate’s competency in content covered by the mandatory courses (i.e. Levels I, II, III and IV). All content from these courses is testable on the MQE.
As was first communicated to Members and Students on May 6th, the 2020 MQE will be online for all candidates. Online examination, securely administered with remote proctoring, will ensure a consistent and reliable exam experience is available to everyone, regardless of location. The decision to move the MQE online follows our consultation with other institutions, universities, and colleges on the academic challenges created by the COVID-19 crisis. If for any reason a candidate already registered for the MQE does not wish to write online, a full refund will be provided without the usual administrative fee. The requirements to write online exams can be found here.
The examination fee for the 2020 MQE is $1,370.
As all MQE candidates will be writing their exams online, the $200 international student fee will not apply to the 2020 MQE. International MQE candidates who have already paid this fee will be refunded the $200.
CBV Institute recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has had financial repercussions on certain MQE candidates. As such, CBV Institute will extend to such individuals (i.e., whose personal or household income has been reduced due to COVID-19) the opportunity to defer the payment of 50% of their MQE fee until Friday September 18, 2020. All MQE candidates who wish to take advantage of this partial fee deferral are asked to carefully read and complete this form, and send to Christine Sawchuk, Director of Education and Accreditation, at email@example.com, by 5pm EST on Monday, June 15, 2020. Deferral requests will not be accepted or considered after this date. MQE candidates who have already paid their fees in full, but qualify for the partial fee deferral and wish to take advantage of this opportunity, may submit the above form to Christine Sawchuk (firstname.lastname@example.org) and receive a 50% refund (to be repaid on Friday September 18, 2020).
