In order to add a training course, the submission package comprises two components:

Trainers: Prepare the trainer(s) credentials and information. The Authorized trainers requirements are listed here.

Training Course Materials: Prepare your Training Course Materials. Complete the applicable Training Course Materials Checklist:

Once the legal documents will be signed and the invoice sent/accreditation fee paid, you will be invited to submit your Accreditation package.

The Certification Authority will then have an assessor perform an assessment of your Accreditation Package. The assessor may contact you with questions during the assessment. The Certification Authority will inform you of the outcome of the accreditation process.

Once your training course is accredited, it will be added to the Accredited Course Register.
