A team of internationally recognised trainers who can deliver BRC Global Standards training courses worldwide.

ABOUT THE Approved training partners SCHEME

The BRC Global Standards Approved Training Partner (ATP) scheme was created to develop a team of internationally recognised trainers who can deliver BRC Global Standards training courses worldwide. We now have an extensive directory of approved BRC Global Standards trainers.

All our trainers are professional individuals with extensive experience in their specific sectors and a thorough understanding of the BRC Global Standards.

What are the benefits of using a BRC Global Standards Approved Training Partner?

All ATPs work closely with BRC Global Standards and attend various conferences and webinars. So, unlike other trainers, ATPs have the most up-to-date information about the Standards and the BRC Global Standards certification scheme.

They can provide ongoing guidance and training to senior managers and production staff and will help you achieve and maintain your certification.

Trainers go through a rigorous application process and Train the Trainer sessions so you can rest assured their training is of the highest quality.

All the training material is provided by BRC Global Standards and written by the team involved in writing the Standards. So you’ll always have the latest, most relevant information.

Following your training with an ATP, we will continue to send you information about latest publications and webinars or anything that might be useful to you and your business.
