The QCCP: Qualifications
QCCP Medical Aesthetic Certificate Competency Journey
Self Assessment Questionnaire
Candidates must register on the QCCP examination platform and complete the pre-qualification self assessments to determine whether or not they are able to meet the required competency standards. Those who have not identified any learning needs will be eligible to sit the exams. Learners who have identified learning needs will be able to access RSPH accredited training centres to upskill where required.
RSPH Candidate Registration
In order to take the online exams, all learners are required to obtain a RSPH Candidate number. You can complete the registration here, or via your RSPH approved training centre. Once your application has been verified, the RSPH will issue your unique candidate number which remains valid for use on all future exams.
Exam Registration & Payment
Once you have been issued with your RSPH Candidate number you will be able to complete the online exam registration process.
Learners must complete each exam within 2 hours. All exams follow the same format and consist of 4 sections:
Sections 1 -3 of each exam paper are case studies specifically linked to the competency standards. Learners will be required to read the case studies and input redacted words from a pool of words provided which includes “red herrings”
Section 4 is a Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) covering the full range of competencies in the standard. There are 15 MCQ questions for the learner to complete.
The content for each exam is randomly selected and rotated by the platform.
Learners must achieve a minimum of 75% pass rate across each section and an overall score of 75% or higher in order to pass.
Leaners who achieve a score between 75% – 89% across all sections will be awarded a pass.
Learners who achieve a score of 90% and above across all 4 sections will be awarded a distinction
When the learner submits their completed exam, the platform will automatically mark the paper. If the learner has not achieved an overall pass rate of 75% they will be notified and will be able to re-sit the exam up to a maximum of two times.
Successful submissions will be sent to the regulator and awarding body, the RSPH for review. Upon verification, The RSPH will award the Medical Aesthetic Certificate. The award is valid for 3 years.
