Fees and charges


Revised fees and charges for 2016

While endeavouring to keep AMC candidate fees to a minimum, the AMC Directors recently approved a slight fee increase to address increased costs associated with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and, where applicable, the weakening Australian Dollar.

To provide candidates with adequate notice, the changes will not take effect until 1 January 2016. Fees were last reviewed in 2014.

How will the changes affect candidates?

AMC candidates who have already paid and scheduled for examinations to be conducted after 1 January 2016 will not be affected by the revised fees.

The following information is provided as a guideline for AMC candidates:

  • MCQ candidates who pay for a 12-month authorisation before 1 January 2016 will not pay the revised fee, even if their exam is scheduled after 1 January 2016.
  • Clinical candidates who apply before 1 January 2016 will not pay the revised fee, even if their exam is scheduled for after 1 January 2016.
  • All candidates’ payments, including application and credential verification payments, which occur on or after 1 January 2016 will be charged at the revised fees.

Fees listed are in Australian dollars and are free of GST.
