How do I get my 30 days FREE access?
All Associate (pre-reg) members are entitled to 30 days’ access. In March we will email all our Associate members an access code, which they will need to use when they register for TP ONtrack. When you complete the registration process you will be asked if you have a voucher code. Simply type in the code you are emailed and press redeem voucher. This will ensure you receive free access for 30 days.

Preregistration revision course
We’re also delighted to be holding our first preregistration revision course from
25 – 26 April 2012. What’s more, attendance is free for Associate members, a saving of £120 on the full fee. Places are strictly limited though, so members will need to book early to avoid disappointment.
Our course offers trainees the opportunity to re-visit those topics which we know cause them the most difficulty. The course will cover Calculations, Law and Ethics, Responding to Symptoms, Using the BNF as well as offering best practice advice and how to deal with exam stress. Day one will close with an informal drinks reception where delegates can network with course tutors as well as fellow preregistration trainees.
On day two of the course trainees will have the opportunity to take both Open Book and Closed Book mock exam papers. This will ensure they are fully prepared and aware of what to expect for that all important exam day.
The two days will allow delegates to hear from experts in pharmacy who are experienced in training and teaching for the exams and who will be able to offer guidance and tips on how to you pass the registration exam.
