The registration process for the course will be exactly the same as this year (unless Prof. Delcamp decides to change something), not depending whether a student has studied the lessons before or not. That is, you need to publicize the lessons and declare your interest, which implies that you consent to conditions for the lessons. Typically the 'Students' group is cleared in September, and the registrations for the new session will follow shortly.
If you wish to participate in the lessons at the Spanish forum as well, you can just make a similar declaration there in the registration thread, so you'll be added to the 'Alumnos' group.
On the other hand if you just want to do the exam, you can post those 'keep alive' messages as you suggested to remain a member of the Spanish forum, or alternatively just see before the next exam whether your account is still alive or not, and if not, create a new one. The benefit of the keep alive messages is that when it's time to register to the 'Alumnos' group for taking the exam you're already in the '002' group. In any case, you will need to register for the lessons for the purpose of taking the exam some time during the year, and after that post at least once a month to remain a member of the Spanish forum.
