No.  If you are on a Higher Specialist or Basic Specialist training program, you do not need to enrol on a Professional Competence Scheme.


If you are planning to join a training programme, you should be enrolled on a Professional Competence Scheme until the training programme start date.


We are happy to help you with this.
