The Accreditation Manual is intended to encourage an ongoing summative and formative evaluation process and as an accompaniment to the Essentials and Guidelines booklet, which is itself designed to give guidance to institutions seeking  the  European  Board's  accreditation  for  their  education  and  training programmes  in clinical  perfusion sciences.

The Manual will provide the opportunity for training institutions to carry out summative evaluation of their programme as well as conducting formative tasks and assessment activities in preparation for the  Site Visit.

This will enable the institution to be better positioned to interact with the European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (EBCP) during the accreditation process.  By evaluating and re-assessing its strengths and weaknesses, the institution will be able to provide the student with a higher standard of training programme and maximise its resources.
