Help and Guidance

Most courses are designed for surgeons, students or allied health professionals working in a particular specialty and/or at a particular stage in their careers. All course web pages include details of the appropriate specialties and training levels. (See above)

If you’re outside of these criteria or if in doubt, you should discuss the course with your assigned educational supervisor and if they think that it’s appropriate for you to attend please enquire via our contact us page.

What is my eligibility as an overseas candidate?

If you are not in a UK training post and are unsure of the level to which your knowledge and experience would correspond, please contact us.

What happens if book onto course and I am told that I am unsuitable?

It is your responsibility to ensure you are eligible for the relevant course before registration. If your experience is below the required level, we reserve the right to withdraw you from the course without compensation.

Certificates are issued approximately 2 weeks (often sooner) after your course via PDF.

This allows you time to complete the online evaluation; which closes after 1 week of your course.

Certificates of attendance will not be issued after this time.

Certificates are not provided to course observers or to delegates who have not completed the course.

Have you changed email? Has the centre got your correct contact details?

If you did not complete online feedback within 1 week of the course (and thus did not trigger the certificate process) you will not receive a certificate.

Unfortunately if more than 1 week has elapsed and you have not submitted your feedback, your certificate will not be available.

If within this time frame please request a duplicate via our contact us page.

After any course you should complete feedback, your evaluation as a participant is an essential course requirement, enabling us to maintain the quality of courses we offer and help to improve future sessions

All feedback is conducted anonymously; names are only used to validate the responses
Completing online feedback links to our database and is a key trigger for the issue of certificates, if applicable for your course.

You should complete online feedback as soon as possible after your course and within 1 week of the end of the course when the online feedback will close.

Complete the online feedback even if you have not attended an individual element of the course or failed part of your course.
