1 Gavin Cuthbert National Training Officer in Cytogenetics ACC/CMGS National Genetic Technologist (GT) Training Programme Final assessments

2 Key documents National Genetic Technologist Training Programme

3 draft final assessment guidelines

4 National Genetic Technologist Training Programme Training scheme launched Jan 2009 GTs starting in 2008 could back-date up to Jan 2008 – need to demonstrate equivalence of training with National Programme (section 3.1 of ACC and CMGS GT TMs – contact me or Sarah)
