Certificate of completion of training application

This guide is for doctors looking to apply for a certificate of completion of training and to join the Specialist or GP Registers.

A certificate of completion of training confirms a doctor has completed an approved UK training programme and is eligible for entry onto the Specialist Register or GP Register.

This will explain when we will award your certificate of completion of training and give guidance on your next steps to registration.
