I have already taken the DP Knowledge for Technical Staff (DPKTS) course – do I need to complete the DPVM course too?

If you have completed the DPKTS course within the last five years then you will not need to complete the DPVM course.

However, before you are eligible to apply for a certificate you will still need to complete Parts 2 and 3 of the training scheme (see attached scheme layout for details).

If you have any specific questions regarding your eligibility please contact the Qualifications team at, or refer to our online guidance.
