What is a course with limited availability?
In addition to our published and online courses, there are several other courses that we can run with flexible options. Select the course of your choice and register your interest to attend when dates become available.


In terms of the law, all Operators who apply for Re-certifications need to be in possession of a Novice course certificate. Please be aware that certificates need to be renewed within three months after date expiry.

Accredited Training believes that training should yield benefits, far more substantial than just “a Certificate”. We offer a free service that will remind all Companies or private Operators that their certificates need to be renewed.
