Anyone in the Netherlands who wishes to work as a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, psychotherapist, healthcare psychologist or clinical physician, must be registered in the BIG-register. Did you get your diploma outside the European Union or in Switzerland? If so, then your diploma will first need to be officially recognised. This also applies to clinical technologists. In order to do so, you will need a declaration of competence.

You will have to follow the assessment procedure to determine whether this declaration can be issued. This procedure consists of two parts, namely the General Knowledge and Skills Test (AKV) and the professional content test. The results of the tests will determine whether you receive a declaration of competence or if you might first need additional training. If you get the declaration of competence, then you can use it to register in the BIG-register.

AKV-test and professional content test

The AKV test and the professional content test can be done elsewhere, as is also the case for the examination preparation. Our Medical Dutch training course brings you up to the level (B2) that you will need in order to sign up for examination preparation.

Ik ben zeer tevreden over de cursus Business Engels voor professionals! De training was zeer leerrijk en de trainer zeer goed. Extra pluspunt is het feit dat er heel veel oefenstof beschikbaar is om zowel tijdens als na de cursus te oefenen. Ook fijn dat de training digitaal kon worden gevolgd!

My experience with the course was remarkably useful. It was filled with content that might have been overwhelming but t. Lorna guided us through it and taught us how to get the most out of it depending on which specific area we needed to improve.

Hallo, Ik heb twee cursussen van 20 uur gevolgd bij Taaltrainer van in totaal 40 uur. Mijn lerares was Lotte. Wat me het meest opviel was dat de cursus meer was dan alleen het leren van een taal.

Hele goede training, in 6 weken enorme vooruitgang geboekt in mijn Engels. Leuke en leerzame lessen. Zeker een aanrader.

De trainig was zeer goed. Het programma was gevarieerd. De groep klein, met veel interactie.

Victor is een prima leraar die in alle rust je dingen leert die je al weer lang vergeten was, tevens netjes gekleed en een grote woordenschat in vele talen. alles kon je hem vragen en er werd duidelijk uitgelegd..

Wat een leerzame cursus Business English heb ik mogen volgen, gegeven door Michelle. Een kundige, enthousiaste trainer met passie voor haar vak! Ik raad Michelle zeker aan, haar manier van trainen en de tips die ik van haar gekregen heb zijn zeer bruikbaar in mijn dagelijkse werkzaamheden..

Zeer snel en passend een cursus Engels aangeboden door De Taaltrainer. Inhoudelijk is de cursus volledig afgestemd op mijn aandachtsgebied (international law) en niveau. Top! Over de trainer Paula Vrolijk ook zeer lovend.

At first, it was hard to concentrate due to the timing in which we had the class (16:00 to 18:00). This was not her fault as it was arranged by the company. That will be my only negative review.
