Where can I find my final grade?

If you take a FITTskills course online through FITT or through one of our Delivery Partner institutions, your mark will be posted on your Student Account in the secure student-section of the FITT website. Simply log in using your FITT ID and password. If you take a FITT-accredited course at one of our Accredited Partner institutions, you’ll be able to access the marks for your FITT assessments the same way, but will need to consult your instructor for information on how to find your final grade for the courses you took at that institution.

What if I fail my FITTskills assessment?

You are eligible to re-write a failed FITTskills assessment within 90 days of the original exam date. There is no limit to the number of times an assessment can be re-written. However, each re-write must take place within 90 days of the previous re-written assessment, and there is a fee of $100 plus applicable taxes per re-write. You can request to re-take an assessment by filling out an Assessment Registration Form.

Can I get an extension on my FITTskills course or workshop deadline?

Yes. You can receive up to three 30-day deferrals for a single course or workshop. Your first deferral for a specific course or workshop will be complimentary, and a second or third deferral for that same course will be $50 each. For your first complimentary deferral, please send an email to info@fitt.ca. For your second or third deferrals for a specific course or workshop, please use the Assessment Deferral Request form.
