When and how much skills maintenance to do

When to complete skills maintenance?

Your skills maintenance is due every two years and this is called a skills maintenance diary period. You must complete and submit sufficient activities in order to relicense every second year.

If you need to know when your diary period ends, please call us on 0800 60 60 50 or check out the skills maintenance section of your LBP online portal.

 

How many skills maintenance activities to do?

Before 2 November 2017, LBP skills maintenance was made up of only elective activities. If your current skills maintenance diary is due before 2 November 2017, your skills maintenance requirements are shown in the top table.

All skills maintenance diaries due after 2 November 2017 will be part of the new skills maintenance programme. This skills maintenance programme includes elective activities, on the job learning and mandatory articles and quizzes. Your requirements under this programme are shown in the bottom table.

Below, you can find the amount of skills maintenance required for each licence class. The highest number of activities or hours applies if you hold more than one licence class.
