MSP Re-registration

In order to maintain Registered Practitioner status you need to take the MSP Re-registration exam.

Your registration lapses 5 years from when you passed the Practitioner exam - though you can still re-instate your Practitioner status after that date using this route.

The MSP Re-registration courses we offer refresh and update your knowledge of MSP and provide an opportunity to take the 75 minute re-registration exam on the final day.

Please note that course durations vary from 2 to 4.5 days - so look at the course outline for a specific event before finalising your choice.

With the 4.5 day option you join a regular Foundation & Practitioner course and take the re-reg exam on the final morning
