As part of your professional career you are required to maintain memberships for the various governing bodies with whom you hold qualifications. Each National Governing Body charge varying fees to registration, admin and certification for courses undertaken and to keep you records with them up to date.

These fees and the names of courses can change and Active Outdoor Pursuits has no control over this. We therefore do not build these fees into our course costs. Again we can not guarantee that these courses/costs will remain the same but they are the best indicator we have in helping you to budget for the course.

Pre Course Costs

Prior to the ITC course you need to be registered with the National governing bodies as below.

On Course Admin Fees

On each certification there are admin fees associated with the certification. These are normally given to providers on the courses – however, we have an arrangement with all our providers that they invoice us separately and we invoice yourselves in a single invoice for everything to keep things as easy as possible and to stop you having to get out lots of cash.
