SCOPE Certification Renewal
Keep your SCOPE Certification up to date! Certification is renewable annually by completing two additional SCOPE modules, and submitting a renewal fee.
From 1st April 2023, you will also need to pass the SCOPE Examination to renew your certification. Click here to learn more.
Still have questions? Please contact email@example.com.
We believe up-to-date knowledge is essential for optimal obesity management. For this reason, we ask that you maintain your SCOPE Certification by earning at least 1 SCOPE point (equivalent to two standard-length e-learning modules) each year after certifying.
You will also need to pay an annual renewal fee £12 to maintain your SCOPE Certification. This payment can be made by purchasing the 'Recertification' item on the SCOPE platform (after logging in, search for 'Recertification' using the search bar at the top of the page).
You must complete the two additional modules and make your renewal payment on or before the expiry date on your certificate in order to recertify. When you have completed these steps, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will renew your SCOPE Certification. We will also issue you with an updated certificate.
If you have not already completed the Core Learning Path, you must do so before recertifying. This can be completed instead of the two additional e-learning modules.
From 1st April 2023, anyone wishing to renew their SCOPE Certification must also pass the new SCOPE Examination. The examination has two components: a core exam and a series of supplementary examinations. Candidates must pass the core exam and one supplementary exam of their choice. Click here to learn more.
