The M_o_R Examination Board has determined that all Practitioners should be re-registered within 3 years of their original certification. All Practitioners who have taken the M_o_R Practitioner qualification since October 2000 have agreed or are agreeing to this requirement as part of their initial application and so are now designated as Registered Practitioners. (The erstwhile shorter Re Registration exam for M_o_R has now been stopped and replaced by the full Practitioner Exam). The Re Registration will uphold Practitioner status for 3 years. To retain Practitioner status after this time one of the following routes will need to be taken: An active subscription to the AXELOS M_o_R membership scheme each year and Completing the required number of CPD points each year or alternatively : Taking the M_o_R Practitioner exam every 3 years.

Why do I have to re-register?
Re-registration for M_o_R® has been available since the beginning of 2008. All M_o_R® Practitioners should be re-registered within 3 years of their original certification. Those who have taken the examination have agreed to this requirement as part of their initial application and so are now designated as Registered Practitioners.
All Practitioners certified have the opportunity to take the Practitioner examination in order to demonstrate their commitment to professional development. This is particularly important following the recent update to the M_o_R Guide.
By taking the Re-registration, candidates are able to demonstrate to employers and prospective employers the recency of their knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development.
How long does my M_o_R® registration last for?
The registration has a validity of three years and Registered Practitioners will be required to take a Practitioner examination to confirm their competence in the M_o_R® Methodology before the end of the five year period.
What happens if I have gone past my 3-year period?
You should contact SPOCE who will be able to arrange the M_o_R® Practitioner exam for you. If you have exceeded the 3-year term, you can still take the 150 minute M_o_R® Practitioner exam. In the meantime you should be aware that your "Registered" status is lapsed, and this will show on the Successful Candidate Register.
