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). 

 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
