The Examination

The 5-week Course is followed by an examination. The examination fee is included in the fee for the 5-week Course.

The object of the examination is to give casting room staff the opportunity to prove that they have reached a high standard of safety and competence in treating patients. The British Casting Certificate is awarded to successful candidates and is being increasingly recognised by employing authorities and gives added support when responsible posts are being considered. British Casting Certificate holder’s names are held on a Register at the BOA and must recertify every three years and provide evidence of Continuing Professional Development to stay on the Register. From 1st January 2006 the examination is no longer available to those who have not previously attended a BOA Committee Validated Course.

To sit the examination candidates must be attending or have previous attendance at a BOA Committee Validated Full Casting Course. All retakes of this Examination must be completed within two years of course attendance.

The examination consists of viva and practical sessions. All sections must be passed individually and at the same sitting. There will be two external examiners.
