Approved Trainer Agreement

As an Approved Trainer of Passion4Training, you the Approved Trainer agrees to meet and continue to comply with the agreement.  It is important that you have read and fully understood all sections of this agreement.

This agreement describes in brief all the elements Passion4Training consider mandatory to provide high standards of training courses and these are therefore mandatory to be considered an Approved Trainer of the Passion4Training’s Approved Trainers Membership.

You the Approved Trainer is solely responsible for compliance with the approved trainer agreement and are only permitted to provide Passion4Training approved courses within your organisation registered when you/ or your employer purchased any of our train the trainer courses. You agree that our train the trainer courses meet the needs of your organisation/ individual requirements and agree to notify Passion4Training if you are unable to meet any aspect of this agreement.  If Passion4Training is notified of a breach of the agreement, then Trainer Membership may be suspended without notice until the individual can demonstrate that it fully meets all parts of the Approved Trainer Agreement.

Passion4Training does not make any inspection of members to verify that they are complying with the Approved Trainer Agreement and therefore Passion4Training does not accept any responsibility for any member’s conduct, procedures, or operation. However, during your membership with us you will be required to provide evidence to demonstrate that you are compliant with all aspects of the Approved Trainer Agreement by submitting all attendance records on the provided QA record that can be located in your train the trainer resource packs or on the Approved Trainer HUB. These must be submitted every 6 months and uploaded via the Approved Trainer HUB or can be sent by email to hello@passion4training.co.uk and any supporting documents we request for Quality Assurance processes.

Passion4Training may update the Approved Trainer Agreement at any time but will notify all Approved Trainers of the changes via the Approved Trainers Portal.

If you are unsure of any aspect of the Approved Trainer Agreement, please contact us via the Approved Trainer’s Portal and we will be happy to assist you further.
