All MSP® Practitioners and/or MSP® Advanced Practitioners are required to be re-registered within three to five calendar years of their original certification in order to keep their designation of Registered MSP® Practitioner/Advanced Practitioner.

All certified Practitioners/Advanced Practitioners have the opportunity to take the Re-registration examination in order to demonstrate their commitment to professional development. This is particularly important following the recent update to the MSP® Guide.

By taking the Re-registration examinations, you will be able to give your employers and prospective employer’s confidence in the recency of your knowledge and understanding in the MSP® programme management field and your commitment to Continuing Professional Development.

Re-registration exams are available for both Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner. You will only be required to sit the Re-registration exam for the highest level of qualification you have achieved.

For example, if you currently hold the Advanced Practitioner certificate (or pre-2007 equivalent) you would only be required to take the Re-registration exam for this level.

Give us a call if you are not sure which level you should be sitting.

  • Content is delivered over two days with the Practitioner/Advanced Practitioner re-registration examination on the second day
  • Due to the intense nature of this course, you should plan in time to complete 15-20 hours of study prior to the start of the course and approximately 1-2 hours in the evening during the course for study and review
  • Scheduled open courses run on a regular basis at our purpose built training facility, Carnegie Conference Centre, in Dunfermline with on-site hotel accommodation available if required
  • In addition, closed courses tailored specifically for teams, can be delivered on-site at client premises throughout the UK or at Carnegie Conference Centre

During the two days, there will be a combination of formal presentations, group and individual exercises to ensure that candidates are up-to-date on the developments in MSP® and prepare candidates for the appropriate exam.

The format of the Practitioner Re-registration exam is:

  • Three questions each worth 10 marks – a scenario background and appendices are provided
  • An overall score of 15 out of a possible 30 is required to pass
  • Duration of exam - one and a quarter hours
  • Open-book (only the MSP® Guide is allowed)

The format of the Advanced Practitioner Re-registration exam is:

  • A 2000 - 4000 word dissertation (suggested target of 2500 words) on a specific subject (selected from a range of topics) demonstrating application of MSP®
  • It would ideally be based on a “real life” programme that you have worked within. If this is not possible (if you have not recently worked within a programme or their programme contains classified information), it would be acceptable to base it on the Advanced Practitioner Case Study “MSP® Care”
  • There are no time restrictions imposed on this dissertation
  • The dissertation will be marked out of a possible 75 marks and you need 38 marks to achieve a pass
  • Should you fail the Re-registration, feedback will be provided. You are permitted to update and re-submit their paper, however should this second attempt be a fail and detailed feedback is given, then you must submit a new paper
  • Instead of the Re-registration paper, you also have the option to sit the full Advanced Practitioner examination to re-register at this level.
  • This course is for existing MSP® delegates who wish to re-register at either Practitioner or Advanced Practitioner Level
  • Due to the changes in the MSP® programme, if you sat the MSP® Practitioner exam prior to 1 January 2008, you may be eligible to sit the MSP® Advanced Practitioner Re-registration exam. Contact us for more information
