Quick read – Commonly asked questions about who can deliver BICSc training

Question: Who can provide BICSc training?

  • Only BBS and approved Associates. 
  • BICSc training is delivered by our own highly-experienced trainers.
  • Approved Associates can also deliver BICSc training, currently we only have one Associate outside of the UK –  FHM who are based in Saudi Arabia.

Question: What is the difference between BBS and a BICSc Associate?

  • BICS Business Services (BBS) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The British Institute of Cleaning Science, which provides training to those who work predominantly within the cleaning industry.  
  • An Associate is approved to deliver BICSc training, they employ their own trainers who are licenced and should carry a BICSc photocard.
  • Authorised Trainers and Assessors can only train in the skills they hold themselves – their BICSc photocard evidences skills they are trained in.  

Question: How do I know that the people who turn up to do the training are recognised by the Institute?

  • If in doubt you should ask to see evidence of the trainers credentials. This would be in the form of a photo card, that resembles a drivers licence.
  • If in doubt contact us at to ask the question.

Question: What other checks can I do?

  • BBS or its Associates will always ask for an official purchase order before commencing work.  Within the United Kingdom ALL invoicing will come direct from BBS and not a third party.
