I have a letter of competence attained locally/I am an experienced fitter, how can I apply for FSRH Letter of Competence certificate?

You may apply via the Experienced Practitioner Route if:

  • your initial Letter of Competence (LoC) qualification was not registered with or awarded by FSRH
  • you attained a local LoC certification and now wish to register or recertify it with FSRH
  • you have not recertified FSRH LoC for more than 10 years, but have been fitting/removing implants for last 12 months

For all above scenarios, you may be eligible to undertake a shortened pathway which takes into account past clinical experience. The FSRH’s General Training Committee requires that, in order to obtain FSRH certification, this training would need to be completed.

The General Training Committee is unable to offer exemptions to its published criteria. However, experienced practitioners can complete a shortened pathway in respect to the clinical component but all other parts of the programme, included the OTA pass, would need to be completed.
