F1 Sign-off

Completion of Foundation Year 1 Certificate of Completion

It is the responsibility of the Foundation School to produce the end of year competence document for trainees. F1 doctors who have successfully completed their F1 training year and have achieved an ARCP Outcome 1 will have a “Foundation Year 1 Certificate of Completion” (F1CC) document created for them. This document serves as an end of year certificate, and will be signed-off by the Foundation School Director, Postgraduate Dean or other authorised signatory.
