The next QUATE Aptitude Test in cervical cytology will be held on 5th October, 2016 in Liverpool, UK as part of the European Congress of Cytology (ECC).
The QUATE (Quality Assurance, Training and Examinations committee) Aptitude Test is an international examination for cytotechnologists who fulfill the criteria for accreditation in their own countries. It is designed to provide an objective assessment of a cytotechnologist’s competence to screen cervical samples and it takes place under the auspices of the European Federation of Cytology Societies (EFCS).
The exam can be taken in English, although additional languages may be offered if sufficient numbers of delegates require translation. The candidates can choose whether to use conventional slides or liquid phase preparations (ThinPrep or SurePath).
The entry fee is 80 € if the applicant is already registered for the European Congress of Cytology, which begins on 2nd October, or € 150 if attending for the examination only.
A certificate of competence by the European Federation of Cytology will be issued on the same day to the Candidates who pass the exam.
The rules for participation and evaluation are available here.
