British Casting Certificate Holders
In order to meet the requirements of the BOA Casting Sub-Committee and to continue in the active steps towards health profession status, it is essential that all British Casting Certificate holders recertify every 3 years. NHS trusts also require all professions to be registered. Failure to register could result in you breaking the contractual agreement with your employer and can result in pay issues.

Fee for recertification is £60.00 for 3 years registration.

Assessing Casting Techniques for Surgical Trainees
Casts applied by surgeons could be better. The traditional approach to training in the art of casting has been inadequate, and British Casting Certificate holders are encouraged to engage with surgical training and assessment. The BOA have created a 10 minute screencast for holders of the BCC and T&O trainees, aimed at collaboration between the two groups to drive up standards of casting in the UK. Viewers are briefed about how best to use the T&O curriculum and one of the ISCP workplace based assessments to structure learning and assessment. To view the video, please click here.
