I've missed my recertification date, what does this mean for my Letter(s) of Competence?

Modified on Wed, 26 Apr, 2023 at 7:06 PM

If you recertify up to six weeks after your recertification date, your qualification will remain valid. However, FSRH records will show that you have not maintained CPD for your qualification and that it is not currently recertified. This will be the information we give to any prospective employers who contact us to check your qualifications.

If you do not apply for recertification within six weeks of the due date, your qualification is deemed to have lapsed. If you do not formally recertify your qualification, you will no longer be able to use the associated postnominals. 

If you recertify more than six weeks after your normal recertification date, you will have to fulfil some extra requirements. 

If it is 10 years or more since your qualification was awarded or last recertified, you will need to retake the full training programme for your qualification. For Letters of Competence, this may be via the experienced practitioner route, if appropriate. You can read more about that on the following links, LoC IUT and LoC SDI.
