How to apply

 

Please do not email or phone to see if your application has been received as this adds to the workload and makes processing times slower.
 
The College will process your application and send out your supporting documentation in the order in which we receive applications. When your application has been processed you will be posted your logbook and an essential information letter to guide you in your training.
 
If there is a delay receiving your training documentation and you have started training, then you may log your procedures from the nominated start date on the application form and transcribe them across into the logbook once you receive it.
 
If a delay longer than 4 weeks occurs since submission of your application and you haven’t heard from us, then it is reasonable to make contact with us via email: [email protected].
