Recognised Institution Role

Prior to each examination the recognised institution must ensure that a course commencement notification form has been submitted to PHECC once a course begins.

Please ensure that:
  1. Fully‐completed exam applications have been sent to PHECC 
  2. Candidates are issued with their exam details by each Recognised Institution (RI); including candidate number, exam dates, time and location, as well as exam date cancellations as advised by PHECC (should they occur).
  3. A suitable exam OSCE centre is available as per current examination facility specification.
  4. All administrative and logistical requirements are met, including the supply of examiners, assisting practitioners and patients.
  5. Candidates have read and understand the terms & conditions (see SECTION 4) relating to attendance at the exam and that non‐compliance will result in the candidate being asked to leave the exam.
  6. Candidates are aware of the MCQ demonstration exam facility available on www.phecc.ie.
  7. All applicants complete the relevant recognised course as currently approved by PHECC or have been requested to sit the exam as part of the accreditation process.
  8. Each candidate has, or will have, undertaken training at the level appropriate to the exam being applied for and that this is verified to PHECC by email seven days prior to the exam date.
