The practical assessment consists of 3 Stations.

Station 2 (live scanning): Candidates will be asked to acquire a number of views on a normal volunteer/ simulator. The assessor will be present in the room and may help adjust the echo machine buttons as directed by the candidate if the machine is unfamiliar. This will be done in a specified timescale.

Station 3 (five viva cases): 5 video cases will be assessed at this station as per the accreditation guidelines, to be presented to the assessor(s).  Candidates who successfully complete all three stations will be deemed to have passed the Accreditation process.
