Early Certification

 

*NEW* - added 27 November 2018

4.9    There will be occasions when a trainee progresses more rapidly than the expected rate of progress and in such cases, the award of an ARCP Outcome 6 can be bought forward. However, this can only occur if:

  1. the trainee has gained all the relevant competences required within the curriculum
  2. the trainee has completed all the necessary examinations and assessments
  3. the trainee has spent the minimum time in training as required by the EU directive on the recognition of professional qualifications

The early achievement of CCT needs to be planned via the ARCP process and would not normally be advanced by more than one year.
