MSP® Practitioner Re-registration Certification - Programme Management

To find out more about the latest version of MSP, see our MSP 5th Edition section.

All MSP® Practitioners are required to sit an additional re-registration examination within three to five years of your original certification in order to retain the accreditation.

Taking the re-registration examination also enables you to demonstrate your commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and that your knowledge of MSP remains current.

Taking the MSP Practitioner Re-registration exam

The examinations are delivered by AXELOS' ATOs who set their own rates, so prices will vary. Some ATOs also offer additional training sessions that will enable you to refresh your knowledge.

See our Training section to find a course.

Examination Format

  • Three questions, with a scenario background and appendices
  • Each of the three questions is worth 10 marks
  • An overall score of 15 out of a possible 30 is required to pass – 50%
  • One hour 15 minutes’ duration
  • Open book exam. Candidates may use the official printed hard copy of the Managing Successful Programmes Guide. The manual may be annotated and tabulated but no sticky notes and loose leaf papers containing additional notes will be allowed.

Due to the impact of the coronavirus, from 13 April 2020 to 30 June 2021 individuals are now permitted to print PDFs for exams and use PDFs or official e-books on a second e-device (portable digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops) during open book exams.
