Why be an IOSH trainer?

All IOSH-approved training solutions are regularly reviewed to make sure that we’re delivering the highest standards in practice (both technical content and training techniques).

The benefits of being an IOSH training provider

Once you’ve been approved, the full and continued support we give is just one of the benefits of being an IOSH training provider:

  • Unlike our competitors, we’ll give you your own named training expert to guide you along the way.
  • We may need to come along to the first course you deliver to observe your training. Don't worry, we won't be checking up on you, just making sure you get off on the right foot.
  • We’ll give you constructive feedback on how you've delivered your first course – sharing training best practice with you. Our trainers tell us they really value this.
  • After you've marked your assessment papers, we'll have a look at them for you so you can be confident you’re meeting a consistent standard.
  • We’re interested to know what your delegates think of their training, so when we undertake our quality assurance checks we’ll be looking at the delegate feedback you’ve collected.
  • We use National Occupational Standards for Learning and Development to benchmark good training and assessment practice – this gives reassurance to training providers, trainers and delegates.
