A sub-specialty training year consists of two consecutive six-month training blocks based around (but not confined to) a calendar year and is determined by the CGO Subspecialty Committee. This applies irrespective of any government or hospital leave entitlements which may operate in a particular state or region.

At each six-monthly summative assessment, the trainee and his/her supervisor must sign off on the number of weeks of leave taken during the six-month training period. Trainees must also maintain, in their training assessment record, an accurate record of all leave taken during the three-year training period.
Applications for sitting the written and oral examinations are accepted in May.
