You will be required to renew your provisional registration at the end of the fifth year in order to go on to the sixth year internship component of the program and will need to provide:
Two renewal limit
Under section 64(3) of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law), provisional registration may not be renewed more than twice. Therefore, provisional psychologists who require more than three years (one year initial registration plus two renewals) to complete the 5+1 program will be required to make a new application for provisional registration before the end of the third year. There is a special form - ARPP-76 - Application for provisional registration after three years of provisional registration and a streamlined application process to ensure the supervised practice program is not disrupted. There is no application fee for this application, just the annual registration fee is paid which is the same as the annual renewal fee, so provisional psychologists who need to make a new application don’t incur any additional costs.
