AMTRA – Fees List

These fees are updated 3 March 2021. All these fees are exempt from VAT.

All payments are subject to AMTRA’s standard terms and conditions: in particular all enrolment fees are inclusive of the assessment fee only on condition that the assessment is sat within 24 months of enrolment. If the assessment is sat after that date, an additional fee will be charged to keep a student registration active. If a candidate withdraws from an assessment within four weeks of the exam, an additional fee is charged upon rebooking.

Written assessments at separate sittings

The normal enrolment fees shown above assume that all the modules and viva (oral) assessments are taken at one go. For those choosing to take their first attempts at multiple sittings: £95 per additional sitting. However, this fee is not current charged for online exams, but may be reintroduced in future.

Supplementary fee for delayed assessments

The enrolment fee includes the assessment fee for the modules selected at enrolment (provided all the modules are sat at the same time). However, the first attempt at assessments must be within 24 months of enrolment, otherwise a supplementary fee is payable.

That fee is £25 plus any increase between the enrolment fee due when the assessment is sat and the enrolment fee originally paid.

Assessment cancellation/withdrawal fees

£50 fee if a candidate cancels (including failing to show for the assessment) less than two weeks before the assessment.

£30 fee if a candidate cancels between 4 and 2 weeks prior to the assessment.

Note that cancellation/withdrawal includes substituting one individual for another within the same company.

Although the fee is a cancellation/withdrawal fee, it is payable upon re-booking for a fresh assessment.


For candidates making a second or subsequent attempt at any of the modules involved in their original enrolment:

Re-sit fee
one module £170
two modules £235
three modules £290
four modules £360
viva (oral) £65

Additional modules ("upgrades")

For those who are adding modules to those chosen when making their original enrolment:

  • Adding the Farm Animal module: £197 plus £41 for any additional modules
  • Not including the Farm Animal module: £156 for the first module plus £41 for any additional modules
