Competence Self-Verification (CSV):
The Competence Self-Verification (CSV) tool developed by the CDBC enables applicants to verify their self-assessment of competence on the CSA questionnaire and provides detailed information on competence gaps and practice areas that need to be addressed. Structured case studies assess the ability of applicants to apply their knowledge, training and expertise to practice situations.

To assist in determining readiness, applicants may retake the CSV case studies once following completion of Self-directed Learning activities. Applicants are not required to retake the case studies if they feel prepared to write the CDRE. To view sample questions of Competence Self Verification (CSV) Case Studies, click here
