Maintaining your CSci status
Like most professional awards, it's a mandatory requirement to commit to continuous professional development (CPD). In a fast-changing world, keeping your knowledge and skills up to date is essential.
Maintaining a record of your professional development helps you to identify gaps in your knowledge and opportunities to learn new skills. We offer members a free CPD recording tool to make this easier.
A retention fee of £73.35 is also required and is paid annually when you renew your membership.
Visit the members' area for more information about revalidating your award and reinstatement to the register.
Please note the RSC retain a £22 administration fee for payments for Chartered Scientist. The remainder of the fee is transferred to the Science Council.
