Application for an AGES Accredited Training Site
Any unit may apply to become an AGES Accredited Training Site. The AGES education subcommittee has developed a standard application for accreditation of a training centre. This application has been subject to extensive peer review and covers a wide variety of educational needs as well as surgical requirements and expectations for training. A minimum of two supervisors will be required for a centre to be recognised as a training site.
For approved sites, the curriculum and assessment tools will be provided and undertaken within the unit’s own infrastructure. For prospective training sites, the central application and interview process will facilitate the review of all prospective trainees at one time and in a single location.
The delivery of training will continue to be the responsibility of individual facilities, albeit within the guidelines that have been established by AGES.
Application forms are available on the AGES website, please see below, or from AGES Education.
