Professional Accreditation

The APPRES training program prepares individuals to write the Service Alberta accreditation exams required to process registrations in APPRES.

Registry Online users use the Personal Property Registry (PPR) services to meet their individual business needs. This course covers Registry Online APPRES functions including but not limited to:

  • Security agreements
  • Discharges
  • Amendments and renewals
  • Searching the Personal Property Registry System

If you are completing searches only, you need not be accredited. However, users will require accreditation to make registrations in APPRES.

Accreditation Exam Preparation

Completion Requirements

Individuals must pass an accreditation exam. Exams are not offered by MacEwan University or SAIT and must be taken through Service Alberta. Visit Service Alberta for information on the accreditation/certification examination process. Successful completion of an accreditation exam does not guarantee access to Government of Alberta Registries systems. Your place of business must have an agreement with Service Alberta for access to the Corporate Registry or Personal Property Information systems.
