Step 2

DELTA Awards will respond within 5 working days and will send Centre Application Documentation for Centre Approval applications.

Endorsed courses are considered on a case by case basis and Delta Awards will contact the named representative as required for more information.

Step 3

For Centre Approval, the Centre Application Documentation should be returned with all sections completed in full and supporting evidence provided.

For endorsed courses, the required evidence should be provided as requested.

Step 4

For Centre Approval, the Application is reviewed, and the Centre will be appointed a Course Provider Representative who will arrange a Centre visit.

For endorsed courses, on receipt and consideration of the evidence requested, a decision on endorsement will be made.

Step 5

For Centre Approval, DELTA will provide a report of the outcome of the application.

Step 6

If successful, the Centre will receive Centre Approval and immediate approval to run one course. If further courses are required at a later date, the administration fee will be applied for each application.

Endorsed courses will be reviewed after 12 months. Training providers will be able to use the Delta Awards logo on their website and certificates.
