Completion of training
Specialty training in public health is deemed to be complete when:
- The local training programme has held a final assessment and issued the final assessment form stating that the registrar has met all the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) criteria. This form states the day when the training time is agreed to be complete
- The registrar has been admitted to Membership of the Faculty of Public Health (FPH)
- On completion of training registrars from a medical background are recommended to the General Medical Council (GMC) for inclusion on the Specialist Register, while those from other disciplines are recommended for registration with the UK Public Health Register (UKPHR).
Applying for CCT
The CCT fee is payable to FPH before a recommendation to the regulator is made.
The fee for 2017 has been set at £184.
Acknowledging that many Specialty Registrars are FPH members, until 1 October 2014 this fee will be waived for all Specialty Registrars who have been an FPH member (in any category) in good standing for a period of two years or more prior to their CCT date. From 1 October 2014, the fee will be waived for those who have been an FPH member for a period of three years or more.
