Apply for Training Approval

Approvals process

The Training Approval process is made up of the following 4 steps:

Step 1: Complete and submit your application. Make sure you read the Approved Training Scheme Application Guidelines prior to completing your application.

Step 2: The training and education team will complete a pre-screening of your application prior to submitting it for formal review. This is to ensure all documentation and information has been supplied correctly.

Step 3: Your application will be reviewed by suitably qualified assessor(s).

Step 4: A decision will be made and communicated to you.   


Fees operate on a sliding scale, depending on the number of courses you wish to have approved. The table below shows the costs for 2017.

To ensure your application is reviewed by one of our assessors as part of our quarterly review cycle, we must receive your completed applications before the submission deadlines. You are strongly encouraged to submit applications in plenty of time, to ensure sufficient time is factored in, if more information is required following the initial pre-screening stage.
