Note that we are asking students to arrive early for all the workshops at 1:45 p.m. to give sufficient time to sign in. The workshop will begin promptly at 2:00 p.m. We remind students that GRADPROSKILLS is quite strict on punctuality; and if students do not show up on time, they are assumed to be absent and will be charged the non-attendance fee of $25.


In addition, all TA applicants are required to complete the COPTTA (Concordia Oral Proficiency Test for Teaching Assistants) English test. If you have already passed the test before, you do not need to re-take it. The test will be offered on the following dates:

Thursday, August 3, 2017

Monday, August 14, 2017

Friday, August 25, 2017

Friday, September 1, 2017

To register for the test, please first email and include your full name, student ID, and program of study. You will be provided with a voucher which you will need to take directly to the COPTTA office to register for a test date and time that suits you.

Only students who completed their Cegep or high-school here in Quebec in English or any other English institute in Canada are exempt from taking the COPTTA test. Please note that only applicants for tutor, lab demonstrator and programmers-on-duty positions (not marker) require completion of the Health & Safety and COPTTA. 

The following are the only categories of students exempt from taking the COPTTA test:

  • Marker applicants
  • Students who have already passed COPTTA with a score of 4 or higher
  • Students who have completed at least 4 years of education in English in a Canadian school prior to starting their Bachelor's degree (i.e English high-school or cegep). The candidate must supply proof.

Note that students who have studied in an English school outside of Canada will still need to pass the COPTTA test.

NOTE: You DO NOT need to wait to complete the COPTTA and Health & Safety training workshop before applying online for TA positions. We suggest you apply for TA positions as soon as application opens. You will then complete coptta and training later in August.
