Information for Training Providers

If you are looking to find relevant training within the Explosives Sector, IExpE has a number of schemes to help you find those most relevant to you.

There are four levels available:-

Recognised Courses

These are provided by organisations of good standing in the sector and can be considered as the starting point for your search for training and education. Note that his does not include any vetting of the technical content or quality assurance of the course.

Learners attending a recognised course are eligible for Student Membership of the IExpE (provided that they are not currently a member at any grade).

Endorsed Courses

Endorsement of a course by the IExpE demonstrates that the technical content of the course has been independently vetted and that the method of delivery is suitable for the knowledge being imparted. Endorsed centres must have robust quality arrangements in place.

Course content will be mapped against membership/professional registration criteria and CPD hours will be recognised by the IExpE.

Learners attending an endorsed course will receive a certificate from the IExpE and are eligible for Student Membership (provided that they are not currently a member at any grade).

Badge of Excellence

Awarding a Badge of Excellence not only requires the provider to be assured by the IExpE’s robust quality procedures and technical vetting, but also to be externally recognised by Open Awards to provide excellent training, development and learning provision with meaningful outcomes.

Course content will be mapped against membership/professional registration criteria and CPD hours will be recognised by the IExpE.

Learners attending an endorsed course will receive a certificate from Open Awards and are eligible for Student Membership (provided that they are not currently a member at any grade).

Accreditation

Accreditation through the IExpE is for those organisations delivering training leading to formal qualifications. This involves greater internal and external assurance and is the pinnacle of our endorsement programme. Accredited centres and courses can be regarded as representing excellence in the field of Explosives Education and Training

Learners may receive Ofqual qualifications (depending upon the course) recognised worldwide and directly supporting membership/professional registration. They will receive a Qualification and Certificate through Open Awards and are eligible for Student Membership (provided that they are not currently a member at any grade).
