Accredited Training Membership

Accredited Training Membership is available for any of our Accredited Training Organisations (ATO). ATOs can now take advantage of all of the benefits of being a BICSc member while demonstrating their commitment to BICSc accredited training under one membership.

  • Pay just one fee to become an Accredited Training Organisation and BICSc member.
  • There are different levels of membership depending on whether your ATO is Static or Roaming and how may Assessors are licensed to your ATO.


To apply for ATM membership, your organisation must meet the requirements for becoming an ATO.


What is an ATO?

An Accredited Training Organisation is a company who employs BICSc Approved Assessors, who can assess and award members of staff certification in skills from the Cleaning Professional’s Skills Suite.


What is the difference between Static and Roaming?

A Static ATO means that assessments always have to be carried out at one same location. Whereas a Roaming ATO means that the assessments can take place across multiple sites.


What do you need to do to become an ATO?

You will need to meet specific site and equipment requirements which will be approved by one of our BICSc Verifiers.


What is the ongoing requirement of an ATO?

An annual audit visit is for the ATO’s Assessors and Trainers to evidence their compliance with the BICSc standard of accreditation over the previous 12 months. We also arrange a free of charge six-month interim liaison visit.
