The Re-Entry Program is for applicants who do not have sufficient practice hours (600 hours in the last three-year period) or for individuals who have been subject to a disciplinary action which has resulted in a requirement for supervised practice.
The SCOT Registrar and SCOT Registration & Licensing Committee review the Re-Entry applications and arrange the set-up of the SCOT Re-Entry Program.
The length of the Re-Entry Program is a minimum of 450 hours and can be completed on a full or part-time basis. The part-time program must be completed with a minimum of 20 hours per week and the program must occur over consecutive weeks.
While the applicant is participating in the SCOT Re-Entry Program, they will be provided with a Practising Licence with conditions.
Applicants who require the completion of the Re-Entry Program must allow for a minimum of one month for SCOT to arrange the set-up of the program.
Individuals who have previously held a practising licence, restricted practising licence, or non-practising membership with SCOT, must contact SCOT at email@example.com to initiate the re-application process and to gain access to the re-application form.
