TFI Registration

There are two types of TFI test sessions: public and institutional. Both programs provide fair, valid and reliable test scores.

Public Test Sessions Outside of Canada

Public test sessions are held in various testing locations around the world and throughout the year. Individuals who are interested in taking the TFI test can register for public test sessions. Additionally, institutions can choose to send students or employees to open sessions rather than testing them on-site.

To register for TFI Public Testing outside of Canada, please visit the ETS Preferred Network directory (EPN).
