Assessment of Professional Competence

The Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) can be completed with or without structured training depending on your experience.

  • Structured training – develop your skills over 12 or 24 months before assessment.
  • Preliminary review – if you have 5 years of experience, go to final assessment following a review of your submissions.
