Training and Accreditation FAQs

Am I eligible for a free place on the training and accreditation programme?

Our training and accreditation programme offers 2 free places on a cohort per enabling hub.

If I'm not eligible, how much does the training cost?

For everyone else, the fee is £300.00 (plus VAT) per person per two-day training session. There are four of these so the maximum cost would be £1200.00 (plus VAT).

How long does the training take to complete?

The next cohort will run September-November 2019 for the four two-day training sessions.

The course is completed by online exam and can be completed whenever is convenient for the trainee.

When will the next cohort of training start and how many places will be available?

The next cohort will run September-November and there will be 30 places available on a first-come first-served basis. The training is aimed at community led housing advisers in England and places will be reserved primarily for that group.

The course convener is willing to train at one-off times, and for groups other than advisers, if requested. The costs for this are £1120.00 (plus VAT) per trainer attending and any running costs (venue hire etc).
