All recognised trainers are appointed initially for a 5-year term with the option to continue in this role subject to satisfactory annual educational review as part of their appraisal.
This review will enable Trainers to demonstrate that they are remaining up to date for the role to maintain their recognition.
To maintain recognition, it is expected that Recognised Trainers complete 20 hours of educational-related learning and development over the five year period . Ten hours of this education should be gained from NIMDTA or Trust run education courses, workshops or events. The remaining balance of the 20 hours may include medical educational events run by other organisations or delivered by online learning.
Examples of other organisations which deliver relevant medical educational events includes Royal College/Faculty/GMC/NHS Resolution
