The Application Process

The CTCA application process is designed to assist specialists in achieving recognition of their experience and training.

Your application will be reviewed by the Conjoint Committee secretariat in the first instance to check that it is complete. If necessary, the secretariat will contact you if they require any further information and/ or documentation.

Once complete, an expert panel will assess your application. The panel has one member from each of the three parent bodies (ANZAPNM, CSANZ, RANZCR). If your application is successful, you will be advised of this in writing and your name will be published onto the CTCA website as either a Level A or Level B CTCA Specialist.

If one or more panel members do not approve your application, it passes to the full Conjoint Committee (9 members), who will consider your application. You may then be asked for more information, or to clarify something in your application. In total, there are three rounds of consideration open to applicants, after which you will need to reapply (for a fee of $330 incl. GST).
