For a training provider and their courses to be accredited by AIT, the course and the provider must pass strict criteria. It is important to remember that AIT Accreditation is used for internal insurance purposes only and is not a national framework or a recognised qualification; each body or company will have their own criteria. The purpose of accreditation is to determine whether a course is insurable by AIT. The main criteria that accreditors (AIT) will consider are:
- Is the company delivering an insurable course?
- Is the content suitable and do the course hours meet the industry standard?
- Is the trainer insured?
- Is the training being delivered by a teacher qualified to PTLLS or AET standard?
To be accredited by AIT, the answer to all these questions at time of application must be ‘yes’.
