What if I'm not registered (a Full Member) and don't pay my fees?
Your name will be removed from our membership rolls and it will be necessary to reapply for membership. For those who relinquish their membership after failing any portion of the exam and then decide to renew their membership hoping to get three more attempts at passing - be advised this will not happen. EXAMPLE: Joe Smith writes his exam and fails. He rewrites in February and fails again. Joe then decides to drop his membership. Two years later his place of employment suggests that it would be beneficial for him to become Registered. Joe applies for membership in the CSOT again. What Joe doesn't know is that he will only have ONE MORE opportunity to successfully complete the written exam. His two other failures are still on record. A person has three opportunities to complete the exams. However .....If you passed the written portion of your exam and then let your membership lapse the exam will become null and void and you will have to rewrite.
