  • The goals of certification are to protect patients from undergoing transthoracic echocardiographic examinations performed by unqualified persons and to set a European standard for competency and excellence in this field.
  • Certification in TTE gives credibility and professional legitimacy to an individual by demonstrating his/her competency on gaining this certification.
  • Through the certification process, qualified practioners of transthoracic echocardiography will be identified and their professional image will be enhanced.
  • This European Certification is designed to test the competency of an individual to be able to perform, interpret, and report routine transthoracic echocardiographic studies unsupervised.
  • Certification in TTE is not a compulsory or regulatory certificate of competence or excellence. Individuals' rights to report and sign clinical studies in individual countries remain to be defined by National laws and regulations.
