We ask that you create an account with the website if you wish to

Existing ARICD Members and Tutors will need to first register for the website before requesting an upgrade of their account to access new information.
Registered Users of the Griffiths Scales are recognised individuals who have become qualified in the use of the Griffiths Scales and have registered and therefore have permission to purchase resources from Hogrefe, the Test Agency. There are two types, each with a different pathway to Registered User status:
- Registered User of GMDS-ER
If you have successfully completed a GMDS-ER training course, then you must pay a Registration Fee to become a recognised Registered User. After creating an account with this website, you can pay to become a registered user through this website. You can check your account Subscription to see if the website already has you as a Registered User. If you are not sure of your status, contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
- Registered User of Griffiths III
If you are a Registered User of GMDS-ER, you can become a Registered User of Griffiths III by completing the Griffiths III Conversion e-learning course. For the moment, only Registered Users of previous versions of Griffiths Scales are able to become Registered Users of Griffiths III.
To become a new Registered User of Griffiths III you must first complete a two-stage course process (find out more here). At the end of this you will automatically added to to this website by our admin team.
