Assessor & IQA CPD Training Workshop

This half day Assessor & Internal Quality Assurance Continual Professional Development Workshop is available by distance learning.

This is an excellent CPD workshop that covers both assessing and internal quality assurance (IQA) and has been designed to meet the ‘First Aid Awarding Organisation Forum’s Assessment Principles for First Aid, and in particular the additional requirements introduced in October 2015.

These Assessment Principles are the minimum requirements that are expected of regulated training providers in the UK. The certificate is awarded by First Aid Awards Ltd, an Ofqual and SQA Accreditation regulated awarding organisation.


Within the Assessment Principles there is a requirement that all Trainers must hold an assessing qualification, or have attended a suitable assessing CPD workshop, to be able to assess learners on regulated First Aid qualifications.

The CPD Workshop has been created to allow Trainers that hold a teaching qualification that does not include an assessing module (such as the 6-credit Level 3 PTLLS), or Trainers that do not hold an assessing qualification, to easily meet the requirements of the Assessment Principles.

Quality assurance

The Workshop is also suitable for persons wishing to conduct the monitoring of First Aid Trainer/Assessors and the quality assurance of regulated course paperwork.

The Assessment Principles require those involved in the quality assurance of First Aid qualifications to hold an IQA qualification or have attended suitable CPD training in addition to holding an appropriate First Aid qualification. This Workshop meets that requirement and allows persons, who do not already hold an IQA qualification, to conduct quality assurance procedures for regulated First Aid qualifications.
