How to become a CCNSG Training Provider
To be able to deliver the CCNSG Safety Passport programmes you will first need to become an approved training provider. The full procedure and related forms are linked below however, should you wish to discuss anything, we will be happy to answer your queries.
To enable ECITB to consider an application, the training provider would need to complete, in full, the following;
· ECITB Approved Provider Application Form (PAM008)
· Approved Provider and Contractor Application Form
· Registration as an ECITB Approved Trainer/Tester Application Form (PAM009).
Following a Finance and Legal due diligence review of the Approved Provider and Contractor Application Form, the Provider Approval and Monitoring (PAM) department will arrange an approval visit to the potential training provider to review resources, facilities, and trainer/tester registrations. At this stage the provider will be notified of the potential visit date and given a copy of the relevant programme approval criteria.
Training Providers that are already approved under the NSA-N and/or NEF Quality Assured Providers programme will be exempt from the initial approval audit and should complete the forms as stated above.
Where the approval visit is successful, provisional approval notification will be sent in writing. For CCNSG, Management & Professional and Skills & Technical programmes, an annual Licence Agreement and invoice for the licence and audit fees will be sent. For Apprenticeships this will be an invitation to submit a tender offer.
All new providers will be audited within the first 3 months of approval, including direct observation of course/training delivery where applicable. Approved Training Providers will receive a further two audits per year (minimum) as specified in the annual Licence Agreement. Applications for additional programmes may be subject to an approval audit and associated fees. The ECITB reserves the right to conduct additional audits at their discretion.
The Training Provider approval process should not be confused with the Awarding Body Approved Centre approval for the delivery of VQs. This process is purely to approve Training Providers to deliver ECITB programmes.
