You can nominate an experienced local colleague to act as your Local Mentor. All Local Mentors must be accredited by the Academy.
Your cases will be submitted for assessment after completion. Cases should normally be competed within 2 years of the course start date. Extensions can be applied for if more time is required, to a maximum of 5 years.
