The RTITB are our accrediting body. They are the industry leaders in setting training standards and best practice in the UK, Ireland, India and the Middle East, its accreditation recognised nationally and increasingly, internationally. RTITB ensure accredited centres maintain the standard set by carrying out robust annual audits ensuring compliance.
Once qualified, all operators are entered onto NORS – the National Operators Registration Scheme. NORS was set up by the RTITB in 2005, a centralised system that validates and registers training. Further to this NORS will contact those registered prior to their certification expiry to remind of the need to renew training.
