Accreditation of Transferable Competences (ATC)

ACCS trainees can count the Anaesthetic and ICM competences and still get a CCT (providing of course they meet all other requirements).The current version of the curriculum has approved transferrable competences (see page23, section 3.2.4 and page 27, section 3.9). http://www.rcoa.ac.uk/document-store/curriculum-cct-anaesthetics-2010 

 Application for ATC should be before appointment to CCT B. ATC should usually be agreed before entry into CCT B training, or at the latest within three months of commencement of training in CCT B

Please note that the maximum amount of time than can be counted is 9 months. Contact your Training Programme Director for further details
