Existing QualificationsIf you can show that you meet the RSA ADI standard because of qualifications you already hold, there is no need for you to qualify all over again. But this is something that the RSA needs to verify. Contact us to arrange an assessment of your qualifications. Depending on what qualifications you hold, you may be entitled to an exemption from one or all exam stages.
The name of an applicant who passes the three-stage examination or is approved following assessment of their existing qualifications will be entered into the ADI Register.
RSA FeesThere will be a fee for each phase of the application process, including any re-test following a fail, payable to the RSA.
Contact the RSA for details of their fees.
