Candidates will not be certified if they haven’t made the sufficient standard. This Certificate is valid for 3 years.

Location

The qualification can be delivered in your establishment subject to a pre-course assessment of the training venue. This is to assist with making the training more efficient and less travelling requirements for yourself for the course. We can also organise training venues and this would be added on to the overall cost for the training.
