The 5 Steps to SafeCert Centre and Trainer Approval

Step 1 – Complete the Centre Approval Form (Please ensure it is fully completed and all boxes are ticked plus the form is signed and dated.

Step 2 – Complete the Trainer/Assessor/IQA Application Form.  You need at least two completed forms. One form for the trainer/assessor and at least one for the IQA.  You can’t assess and IQA your own courses, so please ensure you have a separate application from another IQA.  Please ensure you attach copies of all certifications.  For example if you are applying to assess First Aid Awards, then attached copy of the following:

  • Teaching Award – Attach copy of PDLSG, PTLLS or Education and Training Award etc
  • Assessing Award – Attach copy of D32/D33, A1, TAQA or First Aid Assessing CPD
  • Subject Award – Attach copy of current First Aid at Work, FPOS Intermediate, Nurse etc
  • IQA Award – If applying as IQA, then attach copy of D34, V1, IQA or IQA CPD Award

Step 3 – To gain approval as a centre you need a number of company policies be it you are working on your own, or have a company with 20 trainers.  As a number of new companies may not have these policies we have attached a word template for each of these. These templates are just examples which you then need to adapt to your own requirements and once happy email to use with full application.

Step 4 – Attach copy of your public liability insurance. You also should seek advice on professional liability etc, but we only need a copy of the public liability.  If you don’t already have this try the following:

Step 5 – Complete the EQA Booking Form (An EQA – External Quality Assurer will come to your centre to conduct the approval visit) If your centre has direct claims with another awarding body then no initial centre visit is required and therefore no initial approval fee is required, or if you are an approved HSENI centre then again no initial approval fee is required)  You then just check you have everything with this CHECKLIST and then send via the following:
