ACRRM will work with you to ensure that this assessment can be undertaken as closely as possible to your preferred location, but reserves the right to require you to travel to a suitable venue if required. Such travel will be at your expense.
Limited places are available for the StAMPS. In the event that an examination session is over subscribed, places will be awarded to those registrars who have successfully completed other assessments, and who have also completed the most training time. StAMPS enrolments cannot be confirmed until after the enrolment closing date.
Once your place in the StAMPS exam has been confirmed, information regarding the examination will be emailed to you.
Travel to the venue will be at your expense. In the event that insufficient enrolments are received to deliver the StAMPS over the two days, the examination will be delivered on the first of the two nominated dates.
PLEASE NOTE: We strongly recommend you enrol in the StAMPS mock exam in the semester prior to the actual StAMPS examination.
Fees may be subject to review and ACRRM reserves the right to adjust fees each semester.
