In-House Certification

1st Call Training can also offer In-House certification in the form of both certificate and card if required. Although the certificate is not accredited by one of the above organisations, it still shows the delegate has been trained and tested to a standard approved by an accredited test centre. In-House certification takes the same template process as both ITSSAR and NPORS accreditations, with refresher training recommended every three to five years, in line with the Health and Safety Executive [HSE].
