Joining the BPS RQTU & maintaining your registration


Joining the BPS RQTUSuccessful completion of the Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) course enables you to apply for the BPS Test User Educational qualification and to joining the BPS’s Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) – a publicly searchable database of competence that will bolster your professional reputation.
Even though registering on the BPS RQTU is not mandatory, here are three reasons why we would recommend joining the RQTU.
  1. First, it provides public recognition of your competence, which means that your name can be found by anyone wanting to check your qualifications.
  2. Secondly, you get access to information including test reviews and a quarterly journal entitled Assessment & Development Matters (ADM)
  3. Thirdly, it provides a framework for your ongoing professional development.  

A full list of the benefits you receive once you have joined the BPS RQTU can be found here

If more tutor time than one hour is incurred we will have to charge you further at the rate of £90 per hour or part thereof. 

Please note: In accordance with BPS guidelines and regulations, all applications for the reaffirmation process are assessed on a case-by-case basis with regards to suitability and eligibility.
