Abstract

In 2003, after widespread consultation, the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE) established a process for accrediting individuals in adult transthoracic echocardiography. To be awarded accreditation an applicant had to demonstrate theoretical knowledge and echocardiographic study interpretation skills by passing a written exam and provide evidence of training and practical experience by preparing a log book of 250 studies undertaken during a period of supervised training. An accredited echocardiographer was aimed to be one who had reached a standard to perform and report general adult transthoracic studies independently (approximately level 2–3 competence in AHA/ACC/ASE criteria)
