Completion of Training Date Calculator

The College has developed a spreadsheet which can be used to help trainees calculate their completion of training date.

Trainees should complete details of their training programme, the posts they have already completed, the start date of their next post, and how many sessions a week they plan to work. The spreadsheet will then calculate a projected completion of training date.

Please note that this is a projected date based on meeting the minimum training time specified in the relevant curriculum. Completion of training dates should be agreed with your TPD and confirmed by your ARCP panel.

When the new completion of training date has agreed, please send a copy of the form to, so that we can update our records.

Please note that only time spent in GMC approved training posts can count towards a CCT and that any absence of more than 14 days in a calendar year, including maternity leave, may lead to the completion of training date being recalculated.

For further information about time out of training, please see the GMC's position paper on Taking time out of training.
