CISRS have now standardised both the CISRS Part 1 and more recently the CISRS Part 2. Time has now been set aside within the course programme (CISRS Part 2) to discuss each candidates NVQ. Your candidate will be included in all NVQ sessions but should you require us to register them and issue trainees with their blank portfolio whilst they are here please let us know and we will raise all the relevant paperwork/invoice. Trainees will be able to discuss the NVQ portfolio in more detail with our NVQ Assessor whilst they are training. The remaining balance must be paid within 3 months of the invoice date. The NVQ must be completed and signed off before candidates can book and attend their CISRS Skills Assessments.
