Providers of recertification programmes are required to enter a contractual agreement with the Council. Contractual agreements are usually for a period of 3 years at which time they are liable for review and renewal.
Providers of recertification programmes are responsible for undertaking ongoing audits to ensure individual practitioners comply with the requirements of the recertification programme. Such audits are to be managed by a person/s outside of the provider agency.
