The Tripartite Review Board process was created to assist individuals who have failed the Test of Oral Proficiency three or more times despite extensive training. The Board members represent the PSC, the Language Training Centre of the Canada School of Public Service, and the participant's organization. Persons who participate in this voluntary process receive specific recommendations based on a review of their language training and assessment history.
