How to apply for BPS qualifications

The first step in applying for the BPS Qualifications in Test Use is to identify the level of training to which you wish to be trained.

Detailed information on the qualifications and levels of training can be found on the Qualifications and Fees page.

Contact a training provider and arrange to undertake relevant training. 

You will need to check with the provider that the course and assessment will lead to a BPS qualification.

When you have completed your training course, your trainer/Assessor will assess your competence.

If you are successful your trainer/Assessor will ask you to fill in and sign a consent form.

Your Assessor will then send an electronic affirmation of your competence in the qualification to the BPS.

The BPS will send you an invoice for the testing qualifications that you have applied for. 

The invoice will also include the fee for your entry on the BPS Register of Qualifications in Test Use, which is renewable annually.

The BPS issues your certificate in the qualification you have gained. You are entered onto the RQTU and your access to the RQTU member benefits is activated.

Maintenance of Competence is the method by which members of the RQTU demonstrate their continued competence in testing. Each year you must affirm your continued competence in test use.
