BTEC L3 Registration

Level 3 BTEC Registration and Fees

News: Edexcel – BTEC is closing the QCF version of their BTEC registration from August 2020, so please pay your fees asap (all 3 unit Cert learners will also be registered on 6 unit, to permit future upgrade to diploma after August) Although registration will close, these BTEC courses are running until December 2022

Currently all our BTEC L3 course prices exclude the Edexcel BTEC registration fee.

As per BTEC qualification rules, we request that students pay their registration fees within one month from enrolment.

We will register students with Edexcel only after they have paid their BTEC Reg. fee and have also completed their on-line identity check. (which includes a brief course induction talk)

Your BTEC registration number should be available from 4 weeks from completing your registration payment and ID check.

Although not required for your first unit, tutors will require you to quote your BTEC No. for subsequent units and assessments requests.


Please pay your fees for your course by selecting the correct ‘Add to cart’ button below:

    Our BTEC engineering certificates and diplomas are accredited by Edexcel who one are of the main UK qualification awarding bodies (for BTEC, GCSE and A-level), and are recognised both in the UK and internationally by Universities and employers.

    To determine if your specific countries recognises BTEC qualifications, you need to check with your local University or employer

    Do you need to pay a btec registration fee for a single level 3 unit? I am unable to find the answer here. Many thanks

  3. James Farrell says:

    I am looking at the BTEC level 3 in electrical and electronic engineering.
    Once I pay the course fee, registration fees and buy the necessary kit, are there any other hidden costs such as exam fees?

  4. Dear Sir/Madam

    Please send me details on how l can register to do electrical courses with your organisation.

  5. Chris Birch says:

    If I were to complete 3 single units with a view to gaining a L3 certificate in Engineering, when must I register with BTEC/Edexcel?

  6. Hannah Godden says:

    I have a HNC in Aeronautical Engineering, so am looking at the HND Top Up. I have already completed 3 HND (level 5) modules, so just require 5 extra modules to give me the full HND qualification. Am I able to buy 5 modules or do I need to buy all 8 even though I don’t need to complete them all?

    Also, can I complete these modules while living (on a secondment with work) in a different country, or must I be a UK resident?

  7. Muhammad says:

    Hi i was wondering if it’s possible to do any of the Engineering courses that carry Ucas points in the time frame of one year?

    • admin says:

      With 3 units, cert offers up to 28 UCAS points (average time 9-months). A 6 unit Diploma worth up to 56 UCAS points (average time 18 months)

  8. wesley says:

    I am interested in your btec level 3 diploma in electrical and electronics engineering but i am not a UK

    resident please give more details for my eligibility and how to proceed for the course fee.


  9. Sha says:

    Please can you tell me your Exam centre number or address that I registered for UCAS Applications, thank you

  10. Dave says:

    If my company paid for the course would I be able to pay the BTEC reg fees and additional equipment costs separately?

    • admin says:

      Yes all these parts can be paid separately, with the BTEC reg fee and equipment paid around 1 month and 6 months later than the course

  11. Gemma says:

    Hi there, I am not sure what course I need to start at? I want to do the Level 4 and 5 but not sure if I have to do the Level 3 as well. I have 13 GCSES including Maths, 4 A-levels not including maths and a Law Degree. I have been in the bulding industry for the last 10-15 years as a legal compliance surveyor. Do I need to start at Level 3 or can I just do level 4 and 5.

    • admin says:

      You wont need to complete a full level 3 course, but depending on your qualifications, we may ask you to complete a few level 3 bridging units, to fill in your knowledge gaps and to better prepare you for HNC/HND in engineering

  12. Robbie shah says: your mechanical engineering practical work done(as all study in online)?

    • admin says:

      The BTEC mechanical subjects are mainly knowledge and analytical based, so do not have a practical content, unlike NQVs
      This makes BTECs suitable for on-line learning

  14. Hi.hi am a quality inspector using CMM to produce FAIRs and inspect CNC machined parts for the automatical and MOD .
    I have no formal Qualifications. I’m looking to start a level 3 in engineering. Is there an inspection module GD&T ect.
    What would I best doing to progress my career.

    • admin says:

      Starting with BTEC level 3 is a good idea to gain recognised qualifications
      On our BTEC course, we don’t offer inspection units as they are simply too difficult to complete practically online
      Can I suggest that you go for a BTEC qualification as it will be recognised anywhere in the UK, and also top-up with a specialised inspection course to meet your career needs
      (Note if you are ex MOD service, you may get your course funded via ELCAS)

  15. Zoe says:

    I have a year left of my electrical installation apprenticeship, can I go straight into a level 4/5 when finished ?

    • admin says:

      It depends on your qualification gained during your apprenticeship
      If you gained BTEC level 3 then yes
      If you gained NVQ level 3 then yes but will require 2 bridging units (included in the HNC price)

  16. John Drury says:

    Hi for a level 3 award of 60 hours study, how long are we given to complete this single unit.

    • admin says:

      Its really down to how many hours you can study per week e.g. 5hrs = 12 weeks, 10hrs = 6 weeks
      For a sing unit you are given up to 16 weeks (4 months to complete)

  17. Mrs Robinson says:

    I have the old BTEC 1st Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (1989) and also completed only the first year of BTEC National in Mechanical Engineering (ONC). I recently did an ILM Level 3 Certificate in Leadership & Management which helped getting back in to writing assignments & “education”.
    I am unsure whether to start at Level 4, do you have any advice?

    • admin says:

      We would probably recommend that you complete a 6 unit L3 diploma first, especially if it has been 20 years since you studied engineering
      However if you feel confident, you can enrol on our HNC which includes two level 3 bridging units (free) for learners like yourself
      If you struggle with the bridging units, then we can transfer you to the level 3 diploma and reduce the cost accordingly

  18. Mario Araldi says:

    Can I include the reg fee from the l3 6 units in the enrollment fee? If yes, how? As I can’t find the answer anywhere
