Read the Standards of proficiency

Before you apply you must ensure that you read and understand the Standards of proficiency for your chosen profession. It is extremely important that you do this, as your application will be assessed against these.

Include as much as possible

Include as much relevant information as possible in your application. If we require more information about your experience, education or training, we will need to do this in writing via a Record of Assessment, after which you will be able to find and send the requested information. This often causes the process to take significantly more time.
