[Extract] Clinical training in psychology is in transition in Australia. The current system of a four-year undergraduate degree with two years of supervised practice permitting practice is transitioning towards one in which two years of formal training together with supervised practice and research will become standard. As part of the process of moving towards national registration of professional psychologists, a formal examination has been proposed for those graduates without at least a Master's level qualification to join the Australian Psychological Society's College of Clinical Psychologists, so that their experience can be recognised. Here we describe the format and developmental stages of this examination. The College of Clinical Psychologists of the Australian Psychological Society tendered for the development of a competency-based examination as part of the process of alternative entry to the College.
