Continuing professional development for Nominated Testers


To guarantee the standard of testing being offered by Nominated Testers (NTs), you will be required to attend a refresher training course once every five years.

You might also be asked to attend a refresher course if you are subject to disciplinary action, or have not done any testing for a period of time.

You will be notified when you are due to take the refresher course via the computerised system at your test station. The first message will be issued when training is due in 180 days. This will be followed by a second message issued 30 days later. The final message will be sent if training becomes overdue and in this instance you will be suspended from testing until a refresher course is completed.
