Accreditation Exam


In order to become an accredited member of the Federation, you must pass the QKF exam.


Once this step has been completed, you will be able to proceed with your application for accreditation online, by providing your certificate of completion of the examination given by the QKF.


The online certification examination lasts 3 hours and costs $ 40 (taxable). You need a computer with a camera (no phone or tablet), a good Internet connection (no microphone or headset required), and a calculator (not the one on your computer). Note that you will need to log into a Zoom meeting for the duration of the exam.

The exam is offered in French or English version. Its purpose is to determine whether kinesiology graduates have demonstrated sufficient proficiency to begin practicing as a kinesiologist. The certification exam serves to protect the public during their interaction with the kinesiologist.


The exam is valid for a period of 12 months. If your accreditation is not completed within this period, you will need to repeat the exam.

Consult the study guide to obtain the general objectives of the accreditation examination. We do not offer preparatory sessions for this review.


To be eligible for The Quebec Kinesiologists Federation's accreditation exam, you must graduate from an undergraduate degree in kinesiology at a Quebec university *.

* Requirements for applicants who have studied at a foreign university: Contact the Department of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion for a comparative evaluation of studies done outside Quebec. For Canadian diplomas outside Quebec, send us a copy of your complete transcript to study your eligibility for the exam at
