General Information 

Training for personal licence applicants has been mandatory since 1994, and for project licence applicants since 1995. Such training must be accredited by an independent body and conform to the syllabus set by the Home Office. Red Kite is accredited by the Scottish Accreditation Board to deliver licensee training courses.

In-house courses, held at your own establishment

We can deliver in-house Home Office, NACWO, refresher and bespoke courses at establishments throughout the UK on request, and can tailor these courses to your specific requirements. For such in-house courses, there must be suitable facilities for the practical sessions (if applicable). Provision of in-house courses is subject to availability of Red Kite staff, and booking at least 3-4 months in advance is recommended. Terms and conditions for in house courses can be found here.

Prices for in house courses depend on the length of course, the number of candidates, and the number of trainers required. Prices start from £800 plus VAT for a half day course (one trainer). Travel and parking may be charged additionally. 


Further information

Much of our training continues to be delivered online, either in real time over zoom or via moodle. Face to face training is offered for some courses and for practical elements. This is usually held in venues in central England, easily accessible by public transport, and close to motorways (usually M4 or M40). We also occasionally use other training venues with good road and rail links.
