MSP® Advanced Practitioner Re-registration

MSP Advanced Re-registration enables professionals to demonstrate their commitment to continuing professional development.

The MSP Advanced Practitioner certificate needs to be renewed within 3-5 calendar years of its issue date. To renew their certificate, Practitioners can take a re-registration examination or choose to re-sit the MSP Advanced Practitioner exam.

The MSP Advanced Practitioner re-registration exam consists of a 2,000-4,000 word dissertation (suggested target 2,500 words) on a specific subject (selected from a given range of topics) demonstrating application of MSP, based on a real life programme you have worked within.

If you have not recently worked within a programme or the programme contains classified information, you will be allowed to base it on the Advanced Practitioner Case Study ‘MSP Care’.

There is no time restriction imposed on this dissertation.
