Frequently Asked Questions


Why is my name on the College's public register different than the name I usually go by?

Your Certificate of Qualification and Registration and the public register use the name that appears on the document that you provided to the College as proof of identity.

We can keep your commonly used name on file and use this for general correspondence. The College registration number unique to each member is the only reliable way to do a search on the register to ensure you are viewing the correct record. Please ensure that we have your common name on file. You can provide it in the Members section of our website.
