Guide to the New Programmes

Please see below for a simple guide of what you need to do to enable you to start delivering CIEH’s new Food Safety and Occupational Health and Safety programmes.

▼ Step 1 - Identify your Accountable Officer 

This is a key requirement in that your Accountable Officer is the person responsible within your organisation for the end-to-end training and assessment process.

You will need to:

  1. Choose one person from within your organisation to become the Accountable Officer.
  2. The Accountable Officer will need to be a current CIEH member. You will be asked to enter the valid membership number in this application, so please have it available. Please note your CIEH membership number is different to a Trainer or Centre number.
  3. If you need to join CIEH Membership, you can register here for as little as £60. 
  4. Your membership application will be processed within a week after which the Accountable Officer will be issued with a membership number.
▼ Step 2 - Establish a Formal Training Contract 

This is the process which allows your organisation to become a Training Account through which you will deliver CIEH work-based learning programmes.

Once your Accountable Officer is a CIEH member you will be able to fill in our online contract application form. 

Remember it’s free and is valid from the date of acceptance.

Please note the form must be completed in order to proceed with your application.

To be able to fill out the form you will need to have:

  1. The name of your Accountable Officer and their valid CIEH membership number.
  2. An Administration Account email address for you and your designated staff to use to gain access to CIEH work-based learning materials.

Once the application has been completed and submitted we will aim to process this within a week.

If you are both the Contract Owner and Accountable Officer CIEH will email the Administration Account email address you provided with your training contract. 

If you are the Contract Owner and have identified a separate Accountable Officer:

  1. Once the application is submitted CIEH will email the Accountable Officer with an outline of the roles and responsibilities required for the position.
  2. The Accountable Officer will need to confirm they accept the roles and responsibilities by replying to the email stating they accept all the responsibilities.
  3. Upon receipt of the Accountable Officers email, CIEH will process and email the Administration Account with the training contract and login details for your online training portal.
▼ Step 3 - Apply for a Product Licence 

  1. Once your appointed Contract Holder has received the training contract from CIEH via email, they should send an email clearly stating the Training Account Number and subject/s that you want the product licence for to or alternatively call 020 7827 5800.  
  2. When your product licence/s request have been processed, your Administration Account Holder will receive a confirmation email from CIEH with a link to where you can access your course materials and curriculum/s from the 2nd May.
