Client Courses

SPOCE can run Re-Registration events and any of its training courses at your organisation. This is cost-effective if you have more than 5 or 6 delegates to train on one course. Any fewer than 4 or 5 and it is more cost-effective to use SPOCE's open public schedule.

What are the costs?

SPOCE can provide you with a breakdown of costs for your course, including details of:

  • daily trainer rate
  • expenses, trainer accommodation and travel
  • a "per delegate" fee for manuals, registration fees, exams

Re-Registration FAQs

How do I choose between SPOCE's Re-Registration options?

Re-Reg Self-Study - £399 + P&P + VAT

This self-study package gives individuals a cost-effective option to review MSP® using SPOCE's e-Learning. SPOCE recommends that approximately 20 hours is committed to fully understand the latest manual, although time will vary depending on the candidate's involvement with MSP®. Included in this package is SPOCE's e-Learning, the latest MSP® Manual; and the Re-Registration Exam.  The exam date can be chosen when you are coming to the end of your study and can be taken at any SPOCE exam venue.

Re-Reg Blended - £599 + P&P + VAT

This package is ideal for individuals who have a need to re-study MSP®, and are looking for a mixture of self-study and classroom training. Candidates should prepare for the exam using SPOCE's e-Learning, and then attend a 1-day exam preparation event to fine-tune their understanding with an approved MSP® trainer. The exam preparation day and exam date can be chosen when you feel ready to attend.

Re-Reg Classroom - £899 + P&P + VAT

This is the full 4-day training course which will prepare you thoroughly for the Re-Registration Exam.  The MSP Manual was updated in 2003 and 2007 and includes a number of significant updates. SPOCE recommends that individuals who have not studied the MSP Guide for a while choose either the classroom option or the Re-Reg Blended option. Includes the latest MSP® Manual; exam preparation CD; 4-days training; all course handouts; refreshments and the Re-Registration Exam.

Re-Registration Exam only - £199 + VAT

If you are confident that your knowledge of MSP® is up to date and you do not require any training or support, then you may choose to take this exam-only option. This is just the 1-hour, 15 minute exam without any training provided by SPOCE.  The exam can be taken at any SPOCE exam venue.


Why do I have to re-register?

The Examination Board has determined that all MSP® Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 years of their original certification. This re-registration comprises a 1-hour examination set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination. All Practitioners who have taken the MSP Practitioner qualification have agreed or are agreeing to this requirement as part of their initial application and so are now designated as Registered Practitioners.


How long does my registration last for?

The registration has a validity of five years and Registered Practitioners will be required to take a re-registration examination to confirm their competence in the MSP® Guidance before the end of the five year period.


What happens if I have gone past my 5-year period?

You should contact SPOCE who will be able to arrange the Re-Registration exam for you. If you have exceeded the 5-year term, you can still take the 1-hour and 15 minutes Re-Registration exam. In the meantime you should be aware that your "Registered" status is lapsed, and this will show on the APMG Successful Candidate Register.


What format is the Re-Registration exam?

The Re-registration exam follows the same format as the Practitioner exam but the Question Booklet contains three questions, giving a total of 30 marks available, to be answered within one hour and 15 minutes. It is an open-book exam (MSP® Manual only)

The pass mark is 15 from a possible 30 marks (50%). Each question tests one of the syllabus areas. The exam can be taken at any of SPOCE's venues (paper-based).


Is Re-Registration required for the Advanced Practitioner level?

The format of the Advanced Practitioner Re-registration is:

A 2000 – 4000 word "dissertation" (suggested target 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 the candidate has worked within. If this is not possible (if a candidate has 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 with the candidate needing 38 marks to achieve a pass.

If you would like to undertake the Advanced Practitioner Re-registration please contact SPOCE on 01202 736373 for further details.
