To attract the standard registration fee, your online registration and payment must be completed by the close of standard registrations.

Registrations will still be accepted up to the close of late registrations but will incur a late fee.

Candidates may sit the test in person at a Sydney test centre or online by Remote Proctoring. Test Centre places are limited, so register early.
