You do so via this page on the HCPC web site.

There's a lot of accompanying information there, so expect to do a lot of reading (how to certify you proof of id and proof of address documents, what information to supply in the character declarations section if the application form, etc.).

To register with the HCPC you need a Certificate of Competence from the IBMS. The only way to do that is through an accredited training laboratory and so you need to find somewhere that you can complete it.

No, the only degree qualification you need for HCPC is the BSc in biomedical science. The portfolio is work experience based.

I wanted to also ask regarding the training done to acquire the certificate of competence from the ibms do you get paid for that and how long is the training?
A masters is helpful for further career progression, but not for HCPC registration.

The training is normally 12-18 months. You can be paid but training posts are very competitive (easily 250 people per job) so most people either apply for laboratory assistant jobs and do the portfolio then (it's hit and miss and also competitive) or they do unpaid work experience.
