CSAP applicants are required to have a minimum of 10 years experience.

CSAP applicants must submit work experience details presented according to the Presentation of Experience template. Work experience details will not be otherwise accepted.

The Presentation of Experience template includes the following components:

  • Curricula Vitae – Employment History
  • Summary – Positions Description
  • Projects Description signed by project supervisor (minimum 9 projects in total)
  • Summary of Instrument Submission Experience (senior review DDE level involvement – 3 submissions satisfactorily released by ENV)
    The applicant must provide a description of their involvement for submissions that have been made through CSAP under Protocol 6  or  directly to the Ministry (maximum of two of them). When made directly to the Ministry applicants must provide proof (e.g. Site Registry) that shows successful results.
  • Summary Table (minimum 10 years of experience)
  • Final Summary
  • Optional Statement of Qualifications
  • One hard copy (with referee signatures) and one electronic copy of the applicant’s work experience details presented according to the Template for Presentation of Experience are required.
    You will also need the Approved Professional signatures for the three successful submissions for Ministry Instruments made under Protocol 6 for which you played a primary role.                      


The decision regarding an applicant’s eligibility is based on the information contained in the applicant’s work experience details. Applicants are therefore encouraged to include as much information as possible in their work experience details. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that sufficient information is provided prior to the application deadline, to avoid a delay in the processing of an application, possibly beyond eligibility for a targeted sitting of the examination.

In order for an exam to be held it is necessary to have at least three approved applicants.
