How to apply for registration

This page contains information about applying for registration for applicants who hold an approved qualification.

Completing an approved programme does not guarantee someone will become registered. It shows us the applicant meets our professional standards and is eligible to apply for registration. We need additional information from them in order to be able to register them.

The information provided by applicants helps us to know that:

  • they are who they say they are;
  • they meet our standards; and
