The Board has reviewed its interim policy for English language skills. All graduates must meet the English language skills registration standard prior to being registered.
Students graduating from July 2013 onwards are reminded that they must meet the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia’s (the Board) English language skills registration standard to become registered medical radiation practitioners.
In 2012, the Board released an interim policy for students graduating in 2012 and mid 2013. The policy described how the standard would be applied to students and approved a timeline for graduates to meet these requirements.
The release of this policy in September 2012 ensured that future graduates were given sufficient time to make arrangements to meet the English language skills registration standard prior to applying for registration. The communiqué also indicated that the amended policy would apply for 2012 and mid-year 2013 graduates only.
As this arrangement has now come to an end, all future graduates from approved courses must meet the English language skills registration standard. To be eligible for registration with the Board, applicants must meet mandatory registration standards. More information about the registration standards is published on the Board’s website.
