The Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) is given to trainees who have successfully completed an approved training programme in the UK, achieving all associated competencies and is eligible for entry onto the specialist register (or the GP register).

The Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration is for doctors who have not trained in an approved programme (for example for those training in another country), but can prove that they have achieved the required competencies, knowledge, skills and experience equivalent to the CCT curriculum.

The GMC has more information on this on their website here.
