Has your entry on the RQTU lapsed?

Have you previously been registered with the BPS as a qualified test user (holding Certificates of Competence/Registration in Educational or Occupational Testing)? Has your entry on the Register of Qualifications in Test Use lapsed?

Your name and your BPS test user qualifications no longer appear on the online Register of Qualifications in Test Use and your BPS test user qualifications are now rendered invalid. A BPS Certificate of Competence/ Registration is obsolete without an accompanying entry on the RQTU.

How can I reinstate my entry on the RQTU?

If your name and Test User qualifications are removed from the RQTU for non-payment of the annual fee, these can be reinstated by settling the annual renewal fee plus an additional administration fee, as long as you re-join the RQTU within 12 months of leaving. If you wish to rejoin the RQTU 12 months or more after leaving, you will be required to have your competence reaffirmed by a BPS Verified Assessor. The Assessor will then provide an affirmation of your competence directly to the BPS and we then write to you enclosing invoices for each qualification, plus the annual RQTU fee. For details of the fees for each qualification, please see the Test User Schedule of Fees.
