However, there are less common fees: here is the full list, valid from 27 September 2018.
All these fees are exempt from VAT.
All payments are subject to AMTRA’s standard terms and conditions: in particular all enrolment fees are inclusive of the exam fee only on condition that the exam is sat within 24 months of enrolment. If the exam is sat after that date, an additional fee will be charged to keep a student registration active. If a candidate withdraws from an exam within four weeks of the exam, an additional fee is charged.

The enrolment fee includes the exam fee for the modules selected at enrolment (provided all the modules are sat at the same time). However, the exam must be sat within 24 months otherwise a supplementary fee is payable.
That fee is £25 plus any increase between the enrolment fee due when the exam is sat and the enrolment fee originally paid.
£50 fee if a candidate cancels (including failing to show for the exam) after the two-week booking deadline.
£30 fee if a candidate cancels between 4 and 2 weeks prior to the exam.
Note that cancellation/withdrawal includes substituting one individual for another within the same company.
Although the fee is a cancellation/withdrawal fee, it is payable upon re-booking for a fresh exam. These fees will be introduced for all exams from 1 January 2015 (regardless of when the enrolment or exam booking took place).
For SQP candidates making a second or subsequent attempt at any of the SQP modules involved in their original enrolment:
For those SQPs who are adding modules to those chosen when making their original enrolment:
Note that these fees don’t include the funding from the Higher Education Funding Council which subsidises the original enrolment fee but which is not available for subsequent modules.
When paid by 30 November 2018 for the following year:
A discount of £2 per person is available to those paying by the due date either online on the AMTRA website (either as individuals or smaller businesses paying for multiple SQPs), or for larger businesses managing their SQPs’ renewals on their behalf in an agreed manner.
A late payment fee is charged on those renewing after 30 November 2018 but by 31 March 2018, making the total fee £55.
Those seeking reinstatement after more than 6 months off the SQP Register will be required to demonstrate that they have kept up to date, either by having gained their full current CPD points obligation within the last 24 months, or sitting and passing the “CPD exam”. Those off the SQP Register for more than 4 full calendar years will be expected to sit the exams again from scratch.
The fee to transfer a student SQP enrolment from one candidate to another candidate within six months of the original enrolment is £75. Such a transfer can only be made with the written permission of the first candidate.
The normal fee to apply for approval as an examination centre is £200, plus travel and accommodation costs of the member of Harper Adams University staff who will visit the site, but for a trial period this fee is being waived.
