Training takes place for groups of appointments of new judicial office holders, once they have been recruited from the competitions run by the Judicial Appointments Commission. Disability Members receive two training days and Medical Members three because they also deal with Employment and Support Allowance as well as Personal Independence Payment, Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance. The most recently appointed Disability Qualified Members completed their induction training in October. Once the members are trained they are eligible to sit straight away.
