Non practising registration
Provisional registration is for Australian and New Zealand graduates of approved or equivalent medical radiation practice programs of study applying for provisional registration where:
Provisional registration is granted for a period of 12 months commencing from the date of approval. This means applicants for provisional registration are required to pay a registration fee that covers the full 12 month period of registration that is granted.
Should a practitioner become eligible for general registration anytime within the 12 month registration period, the practitioner can apply for general registration at which time an application fee and a registration fee apply. The registration fee payable to change to general registration is calculated based on the remaining portion of the general registration fee less the unused portion of the provisional registration fee. This is to ensure that the practitioner is not financially disadvantaged when changing registration types.

Limited registration for Post Graduate Training is for those applicants who do not qualify for general registration but wish to undertake postgraduate training. Practitioners with limited registration for postgraduate training must not practise in any capacity outside of their clinical training program. Additionally, practitioners undertaking postgraduate training that requires a clinical component must practise supervised under arrangements approved by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board).
Registration under this category will only be granted for a specific purpose and for a limited time.
