Lantra qualifications

Recommended Posts

I have a colleague who has done a Lantra cross cutting qualification in the past. He is under the impression that it 'runs out' after five years.

 

I understand that refresher training is considered good practice and a requirement for working on forestry commission sites. (Fisa)

 

Does his qualification run out or is he confusing it with good practice.

 

Is there a different or similar story in regards to the NPTC qualifications?

 

Thanks in advance

If it's a qualification, regulated by Ofqual (such as a Lantra Qualification), It is usual for you to keep it for life.  Generally, they didn't expire the last time I looked.

 

Certificates of competence can expire.

Certificates of attendance can expire.

Certificates of refresher training can expire.

'NPTC' assessments can also expire.

 

 

Regardless of all this however, as for all aspects of work in the UK, 'sufficent' refresher training is still a legal requirement.
