The online application form requires candidates to enter a sponsor’s name and email address. It is essential that the sponsor’s email address is correct and current. Please do not start the application process until you have this information.

Please note only one sponsor is required for the CASC. This applies to all candidates.

Sponsors will be sent an email with a link to authorise the candidate’s application. Sponsors must ensure that the candidate has provided evidence that they meet the eligibility requirements to sit the CASC examination.

Once the sponsor has authorised the application candidates will be contacted directly by the Examinations Unit regarding payment, after the application period ends.

Please note sponsors must have submitted this form by 5pm on the closing date for applications in order for the candidate to be considered for this examination. It is the candidate's responsibility to make sure this is completed on time by the sponsor.
