Dates for RAMA (SQP) Written and Oral Assessments

Written assessment dates

Each written module will take place on a particular day of the week, within each of the assessment weeks. See the full document " Online written exams: Instructions and Information for Candidates and Employers" if in any doubt.

Don’t forget that everyone needs to pass the viva (oral) Assessment as well as the written assessments relevant to their enrolment with AMTRA. See further down this page for more on the viva exams.

How to book your place

Please return the Assessment booking form to us.

On the form, make sure you include the date for each module you wish to book - don't forget to include the Base module as well as species module(s) if that's appropriate for you. And do include the viva (oral) Assessment if you're ready to book that too.

If you wish to spread out your modules over multiple assessment periods, that's fine, and there's no additional charge.

If you already know what you want to do when, you can book them all in one go even for different months, or you can book them individually as and when you're ready - it's up to you. Also, there's no requirement to do them in a particular order - whatever works best for you.

Online vivas

Online vivas are undertaken via Zoom, and can be booked now. There is no need to wait until the written exams - you can take the viva before the written exams and get it out of the way (or do it afterwards if you wish). Subject to certain conditions, the viva Assessment can be taken from home or work or any suitable location of your choosing.

To book your viva, please return the Assessment Booking form.
