Renewal Courses & Refreshers

A renewal involves the repetition of the full course

If a candidate is required to renew the training after a set amount of time then the full grant can be claimed, however this can only be claimed once within the renewal period.

Refresher courses are a shorter version of the full course designed to update the knowledge and understanding of a candidate.

The Grant for refresher training is half of the Tier 1,2 or 3 that can be claimed on the full length course
