Candidate EAPs must adhere to the Code of Ethical Conduct and Practice applicable to all registered practitioners
The Board decided that there can be no automatic admittance to the register for anyone, including Board members! While professionals that have been certified under previous voluntary and statutory systems will be encouraged to apply immediately when the Board is able to accept applications, everyone will need to follow the same process
According to Reg 24H, the Registration Body can only use 120 days from application acceptance to decision.
The application is accepted when the registrar indicates all information and fees are received.
Assessors might identify information is still incomplete or insufficient. The applicant is asked to supplement, and the countdown to completion is paused until information is provided.
Your body of evidence should include three projects.
You are advised to provide evidence of your best projects - not necessarily the most recent or the largest. The projects should demonstrate competence in the required skills, and your specific role should be evident or clarified.
All registration applications are considered using Recognition of Prior Learning and your ability to demonstrate your experience and skill in core competencies.
