Completing a test of competence for return to practice

You have the option to complete a test of competence if you cannot meet our readmission or revalidation practice hours requirements

From January 2020, you'll have the option to complete a test of competence (ToC) if you cannot meet our readmission or revalidation practice hours requirements.

This is instead of completing a return to practice course.

About the test of competence

The test of competence is made up of two parts:

  • a multiple-choice computer based theoretical test known as the CBT
  • a practical test known as the OSCE

We'll update this page in the coming months with more information on completing a test of competence for return to practice.

This will include information on preparing to sit the ToC and how to book your place.
