Award of the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).

To become a General Practitioner in the UK, you need to gain entry to the General Medical Council’s (GMC) GP register. For most UK trained GPs, this means undertaking a minimum of three years (full time equivalent) of specialty training on a GMC approved programme.

Applying for your CCT

You must apply to both the GMC and RCGP for your CCT:

  • The GMC will invite you to apply to them within the last four months of your training. This will be done via a message to the email address you have provided to them and your application is made through your GMC online account.
  • Application to the RCGP is automatic when your final ARCP form has been signed off and you have pressed the button that will appear in your ePortfolio labelled ‘Apply for CCT’. Clicking this will send your CCT application to us.

Further details regarding your CCT application can be found on Royal College of General Practitioners.
