How often do I need to update the training? Card holders need to re-validate their card on an annual basis by demonstrating continuing professional development (CPD). This can be done via the document uploader or online exams. Certain courses (ie, theatre access) are expected to be retaken every two years.
How do I submit internal training and what do you require? When submitting information a short statement including name of training and date completed is all that is needed. Detail records/certificates should be maintained for possible audit purposes.
What is accredited training?
Training by accredited bodies includes that of EduQual, AfPP and the CPD Certification Service
Once your account has been set up/transferred and you have supplied/taken the relevant training along with a photo for your ID card we will post your card to your head office address within 10 working days.
What is tier X and how do I get onto tier 1, 2 or 3?
Members who currently do not meet the LSI National Credentialing Register standards will be identified by the Register at tier X, which demonstrates they are working towards meeting Register standards.
Once you have met the standards required for the LSI National Credentialing Register you will be able to easily submit for approval via this website. This may mean checking that all your training requirements are up to date. (It is up to each individual to decide which tier is relevant for them in their role, and for training managers (or equivalents) to deem what is appropriate by way of product training.)
How does the audit process work?
Three per cent of registrants will be selected every year by the AHCS for audit. Members may need to provide documentation of their qualifications, etc.
How do I transfer my account over to a new company?
You will need to have received permission from your Training Manager/HR manager to transfer your account to your new company.
