When will I hear?

We will email you confirmation that we received your application and ask you for any additional information you need to provide, on the committee's behalf.

Once we have received two references your application will be reviewed at the next committee meeting. We will email you with the committees decision as soon as possible after that.

Applications received after the application deadlines will be processed for the next available meeting.
Please note: Meetings are particularly busy so this may mean your application is delayed due to time constraints but we will inform you of this.

Practitioner (PCIfA) ONLY: These will be assessed when both references are received so you can apply at any time.
If you are applying to gain a PQP CSCS card, please allow up to eight weeks for your application to be reviewed.
