Online Training Portal

Welcome to the RCPA Online Training Portal (OTP) Page

This page has been created to share information regarding the implementation of the College’s Online Training Portal (OTP) and will be updated when new details become available.

In July 2022, the College announced (here) the implementation of an OTP, developed by UK-based company 'Fry'. The OTP will track the journey from candidate application through to high-stakes exams.

On October 31, 2022, Fry announced that it had rebranded and changed its name to risr/.

To this end, the module names changed too, as shown below, and will form the unified risr/ platform:

  • Practique become risr/assess (for all exams) 
  • Kaizen become risr/advance (for WBA and the portfolio) 
  • E-Booking become risr/apply (for registrations) 

The risr/ website explains how the IT platform functions and the College will continue to share branding updates as they become available.

With the implementation of the OTP from 2023, candidates will continue to experience changes to administrative processes, initial and exam registrations, billing, facilitation of examinations, and provision of portfolio evidence in 2024 and beyond.

In 2023, the following examinations were successfully delivered online via risr/assess and ProctorExam:

  • BPS
  • Chemical Pathology Part I Written
  • Genetic Pathology Part I Written
  • Faculty of Science Part I Written
  • NPAAC exams (Written)

2024 online Examinations delivered via risr/assess and ProctorExam.

In 2024, more exams will be facilitated online via risr/assess and ProctorExam and details can be found on the Examinations Timetable here.

Candidates sitting these exams in 2024 will receive detailed information progressively towards the actual exam. In the meantime, please take careful note of all details contained on this page, including the minimum technical and venue requirements in relation to online examinations.

Commencing Chemical Pathology and Genetic Pathology Trainees in 2024 to register via risr/apply

In addition to the broader range of exams being delivered online via risr/assess and ProctorExam in 2024, commencing Trainees registering with the College for the first time in 2024, into either Chemical Pathology or Genetic Pathology programs, will do so by using risr/apply to complete their Initial Registration. Details of which can be found on this page.

Once the Initial Registration steps are completed, further details and information will be provided by the College to new commencing Trainees in the said disciplines regarding the risr/ platform and how training information will be accessed via risr/advance.

As one can appreciate, there are many facets involved in making a Project such as this a success. We value your patience and understanding as we continue to implement these initiatives and ask that you refer to this page for any updates or await emails from the College regarding the changes and how they may impact you.

Any queries are to be referred to bea@rcpa.edu.au.

Sincerely,

The OTP Steering Project Team
