Achieving ER/Non-ER Approval

Training Providers looking to apply for approval are required to follow our simple approval process which consists of three stages:

Attend a workshop – this one day workshop is provided free of charge. The workshop comprises of two parts, part one covers the approval process, part two covers the detailed specifics of the approval criteria and standards

Application and desktop submission – where we will verify that the training provider has the required resources to deliver training and/or assessment and a management system in place that complies with our approval criteria.

An onsite audit – where an OPITO auditor will visit the training provider’s premises and observe training and/or assessments being carried out against the relevant OPITO standard.
