Achieve health and safety excellence by getting your health and safety training courses assessed by a regulated vocational health and safety qualifications provider.
What is Course Assurance?
Course Assurance allows organisations to get their health and safety training courses independently verified by a regulated vocational health and safety qualifications provider. Your health and safety training courses can be delivered in-house or delivered by you as a training provider.
Why should you get your courses assured?
Worldwide, there are around 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related illnesses annually. Within the UK alone, £15 billion was the annual cost of work-related and new cases of ill health. Course Assurance allows organisations to gain assurance from RoSPA Qualifications, a leading name in health and safety and nationally recognised Awarding Organisation, providing reassurance to customers, employees and stakeholders that your programme(s) are of a high standard.
“Having assurance from RoSPA, a recognised awarding organisation, means your training courses will stand out from the crowd, be trusted and give you that competitive edge by showcasing your quality”
Errol Taylor - Chief Executive, RoSPA
Course Assurance gives confidence that:
- the course content contains relevant health and safety information
- the course will be pitched at the appropriate level
- the course will meet the highest standards for trainer competence and course quality
Successful courses that meet the Course Assurance standards will be awarded a Course Assurance certificate and provided with their own RoSPA Qualifications Course Assured logo that can be used on all course materials/e-learning pages to promote the achievement.
The logo will be valid for two years, following which courses must be re-submitted for Course Assurance.

What does the Course Assurance service cover?
The Course Assurance service ensures that all health and safety training courses that go through this process meet our high standard deliverables and once this has been achieved awards a RoSPA Qualifications ‘stamp of assurance’ accordingly.
Any health and safety training course that is delivered by workshops, presentations, webinars, seminars and e-learning can go through the RoSPA Qualifications Course Assurance program.
All training courses must align with our mission: “Exchanging life-enhancing skills and knowledge to reduce serious accidental and injuries” and be in RoSPA’s area of health and safety expertise.
Your health and safety training course will be reviewed against a set of standards that cover learning and development, and technical content and compliance. The course assurance process will be managed start to finish on our 24/7 online management system, ensuring a streamlined and straightforward experience.
Course Assurance is valid for two years, over which time our quality assurance team will carry out a range of monitoring activities and provide on-going support and advice. After the two year period, courses must be resubmitted.
