AMTRA – Fees List

These fees are updated 30 November 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.

Re-sits

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

AMTRA Annual renewal fees for 2022

When paid by 30 November 2021 for the following year:

  • farm-animal RAMAs (those with the letters R, G, K or L in their prefix): £51, or £48/50 including the discount described below
  • all other RAMAs (those with the letters, C, E, J or A in their prefix): £46, or £43/45 including the discount described below

A discount per person is available to those paying in online on the AMTRA website (either as individuals or smaller businesses paying for multiple RAMAs), or for larger businesses managing their RAMAs' renewals on their behalf in an agreed manner. This discount is £3 per person for payments received in October, or £1 per person for payments received in November.

A late payment fee is charged on those renewing after 30 November 2021 but by 31 March 2022, making the total fee £61 for all categories of RAMA. After this, the reinstatement fee is payable.

Reinstatement fees

  • For those paying in April to December: £71.

Those seeking reinstatement after more than 6 months off the AMTRA Register will be required to demonstrate that they have kept up to date, either by having gained their full current CPD points obligation within the last 24 months, or sitting and passing the "revalidation viva". Additional obligations may need to be met for longer periods: please check with the AMTRA office for details.

Student transfer fee

The fee to transfer a student enrolment from one candidate to another candidate within six months of the original enrolment is £75. Such a transfer can only be made with the written permission of the first candidate.

"Revalidation viva" fees to demonstrate ongoing competency

For revalidation vivas in 2022: £120 (regardless of the number of species categories). Note that after passing the revalidation viva, the standard AMTRA Register fee must be paid to rejoin the Register, as appropriate at the time. This may be the standard renewal fee, the late payment fee, or the reinstatement fee, as applicable.
