Become a BOHS Approved Training Provider
We welcome applications from companies interested in becoming Approved Training Providers (ATPs) for our courses and qualifications:
Applications for the above are handled via the 5 step process detailed below. To find out more about our courses and qualifications, please use the button below.
How do I become approved to run a BOHS qualification?
Step 1: Enquire about becoming a BOHS training provider
You will need to contact BOHS to request information about becoming an Approved Training Provider (ATP). Only an ATP can run BOHS courses or qualifications.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an ATP application pack.
We will then send you an application pack with the following documents:
Step 2: Self-assess against BOHS requirements and submit application
Next, a training provider will need to self-assess its ability to meet the requirements detailed in the ‘Handbook for Approved Training Providers’.
If you feel confident that your company meets the requirements, you can then complete and submit the ATP application form. You will need to complete the whole form accurately and honestly, together with required documentation, ensuring that evidence is available should it be requested by BOHS.
What if I don't meet the requirements of the Handbook?
If you feel that you do not quite meet BOHS’ ATP requirements, you have the following options:
- Contact BOHS and ask for guidance and support.
- Do not pursue the application any further.
Step 3: BOHS assesses your application
On receipt of a completed application form (including additional evidence), we will take the following steps:
How long will this take?
If sufficient information has been supplied, the assessment will normally take approximately 10 working days.
Step 4: Receive decision from BOHS
If your application has been approved, you will need to confirm by email that you wish to register as an Approved Training Provider. We will then raise an invoice for the registration fee.
At this point, we will also request a signed hard copy of the Approved Training Provider Agreement - this will need to be signed by a Director or Senior Manager.
What happens if my application is rejected?
If the application is not approved, we will inform you of the reason for this, and provide an opportunity for any queries and further discussion. You will also be offered the opportunity to re-submit your application.
Step 5: Become registered as a BOHS Approved Training Provider
Once the registration fee and the signed Agreement have been received, you will be registered with us as a BOHS Approved Training Provider (ATP). Your company name, address and approved qualifications will be entered into the BOHS online Exams Management System (EMS), and you will be set up with user names/passwords.
BOHS will supply to you by email:
You will need to nominate system users to be set up on the online Exam Management System, as you will need to book your training courses through this.
Each system user nominated by the ATP will receive:
At this point, the ATP will be able to propose and then confirm forthcoming training courses/examinations on the EMS. The EMS User Guide indicates the various steps involved, and additional telephone/email support is available via BOHS' Qualifications Team.
