How to set up a Trade and Apprenticeship ExamBank account

In order to access ExamBank, you need to have an account that you can use. If you are a student, you may want to first check with your school to see if they have an account with us - many schools already do. Also, be aware that we currently have practice exams available for those trades listed in the box to the left. We are always adding more questions to the site, so if your trade isn't listed there yet, please check back soon!

* One credit enables the user to write four questions. Each test will list how many credits are consumed by accessing the exam. If more than one test is to be written, the user will need to log in separately for each test. Each time a user logs in with their username and password to obtain an exam, the credits are taken from their account.

If you would like to establish an account with ExamBank, we offer a range of different packages (starting at $19.95 + GST/HST), appropriate for everyone from individual students to large schools. The accounts are virtually identical in all respects other than the size of the quota of credits purchased, with the larger packages providing a lower per-test cost. The "typical use" mentioned in the table above is just the type of client that we find often orders a given package, but feel free to choose whichever size of package you feel would work best for you. Keep in mind that there is no fixed expiry date on your account, so unused credits will carry over from year to year until the quota has been depleted (some restrictions apply - see Terms and Conditions for details). As well, there is no danger of going "over your credit quota" - when you have used up the number of credits purchased, your account will simply not work until it is renewed by adding additional credits from the Account Administration area.

If you are paying by credit card, your account will be made available immediately. If you are setting up a personal account and paying by cheque, we will set up your account as soon as the cheque arrives. If you represent a school and are paying by invoice or purchase order, we will make every effort to verify the information you provide and set up the account within 24 hours. Once your account has been activated on ExamBank, you will receive confirmation via email.

Our accounts are based on the number of times a user accesses an exam on the web site. Each time a test is accessed, the set number of credits in the quota is used up. School or library administrators, teachers, and parents who wish to view a history of activity, or control when and how students are accessing the site can do so within the "Account Administration" area. In addition, school districts can be provided with "subaccounts" if they wish to track usage between their various schools.

The use of this service requires that users to agree to the terms and conditions established by Syzygy Research & Technology. You may also want to check out our Frequently Asked Questions, or contact us if you have any questions.
