JAG Trainee Certification Process

Over the last 18 months, the JAG has carried out an extensive review and consultation on the way that trainees are assessed as competent at endoscopy. This letter is to inform you of the changes, provide you with the rationale for the changes and give you a timeline for implementation.

Firstly, the term accreditation is changing to certification to help distinguish this process from the endoscopy unit accreditation process.

Trainees have fed back that the application process for certification can be paper heavy and cumbersome. In response to this, the JAG have designed and released the JETS e-portfolio. From mid March 2011 the application process will be streamlined; you will be able to apply through the JETS e-portfolio. From September 2011, all applications will have to be submitted through the JETS e-portfolio. If needed, supplementary paper evidence will be permitted until at least 2012.
