Approved Training Partners

The Approved Training Partner scheme was created to enable the BRC Academy to train manufacturing organisations in achieving and maintaining certification against BRC Global Standards

Today the scheme provides a network of professional trainers who deliver BRC Academy courses around the world, including BRC Global Standards courses and product safety management courses, such as HACCP and risk management.  The scheme has been running successfully for over 12 years and has grown to a network of over 200 ATPs globally.

ATPs are individuals who have extensive working knowledge and experience of delivering training to delegates internationally.  ATPs are expected to demonstrate the ability to train with professionalism, integrity and competence.




Courses run by BRC Approved Training Partners (ATPs) use BRC-developed course content which has been written in collaboration with the BRC Global Standards technical team, authors of the BRC Global Standards. Delegates can be assured that the learning provided by BRC ATPs will give them accurate and relevant information to implement in practice - either as an auditor or on-site.

Here are some other main benefits of using an Approved Training Partner to deliver your courses:

  • ATPs have access to the BRC Global Standards team should they have any queries or questions. This ensures that ATPs are always up to date with the latest developments within the Global Standards, providing manufacturing sites with reassurance that their trainer has the latest information.
  • Your trainer will be highly qualified with many years of experience in your particular sector.  To ensure that all BRC ATPs align with the BRC training philosophy they go through a rigorous candidate selection process to ensure BRC Global Standards only recruit skilled and knowledgeable trainers.
  • Choosing to work with a BRC Approved Training Partner will always give your company a validated and reliable option, rather than sourcing unspecified BRC training from another source.
