Check the online Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU)

The Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) is the formal list of currently active and competent test users holding BPS test user qualifications. Certificates of Competence/Registration without an accompanying entry on the RQTU are now invalid.

How can I reinstate my entry on the RQTU?

After 5 September 2013 (which marks the end of the two-year rollout phase), any test user wishing to reinstate an entry on the RQTU will need to seek a reaffirmation of their competence from their verified Assessor at each appropriate level of qualification.

Fees are likely to be charged by Assessors for a reaffirmation. An administration fee of £20 for each reaffirmation received will be levied by the Society and payable by the test user, in addition to the annual RQTU fee of £36.

What else should I know?

  • If you hold an entry on the RQTU, you will need to self-affirm you have maintained your competence, every 6 years. For details on this, please view An Introduction to the Register of Qualifications in Test Use
  • If you would like information on the rationale for changes to BPS test user qualifications and the register, implemented in September 2011, please view Keeping you informed of changes to test standards
  • When the online register was launched, we rebadged our test user qualifications. To view a grid showing the former and new qualification titles click here
