Accelerated Program – MSC Correspondence

Clinical Training Hours – Accelerated Programme

The Medical Sciences Council of New Zealand (the Council) received a request from the Anaesthetic Technician Training Hospitals for clarification of the clinical hours a trainee Anaesthesia Technician enrolled in the Accelerated Diploma in Applied Science – Anaesthetic Technology is required to complete before sitting the registration examination.

The Council has determined candidates enrolled in the two years accelerated programme must have a minimum of 3680 hours clinical experience to be eligible to apply to sit the Anaesthetic Technician Registration Examination. This being equivalent to working 40 hours per week (less annual leave/sick leave) over a two year training period. Subject to completing the accelerated programme of study and passing the registration examination a trainee who has completed the two year training period would be eligible to apply to the Council for registration as an Anaesthesia Technician.
