The practical assessment consists of 3 Stations.
Station 1- (logbook): Logbooks will be assessed prior to this assessment, submitted by 22 November 2021 via the logbook portal, in advance of the practical examination date.
Station 2 (live scanning): Candidates will be asked to acquire a number of views on a normal volunteer/ simulator. The assessor will be present in the room and may help adjust the echo machine buttons as directed by the candidate if the machine is unfamiliar. This will be done in a specified timescale.
Station 3 (five viva cases): 5 video cases will be assessed at this station as per the accreditation guidelines.
Candidates who successfully complete all three stations will be deemed to have passed the Accreditation process. Certificates and badges will be issued on the day.
Resubmission: first attempt candidates need only repeat the station at which they did not pass in the first attempt. Resubmission candidates receive reserved spaces at the next available assessment.
Registrations: confirmations of times are emailed to candidates at least 4-6 before the scheduled assessment. Times usually range from 08:30-17:30, the entire assessment can last up to 3 hours. We advise that candidates allow plenty of time for travel.
Cancellations: all cancellations must be made in writing (email) providing appropriate information and reason for cancellation to [email protected]. Cancellations less than one week's notice (7 calendar days or less) will be classed as a automatic fail.
