This Award offers the opportunity for an individual to gain NASDU accreditation as an acknowledgement of their desire to become a qualified NASDU Approved Instructor/Trainer.
The role of a Trainee is to provide an additional resource to an Approved Instructor/Trainer and assist them in the delivery of basic training. Many existing Trainers whilst competent often lack formal recognised qualifications or documented experience. This Award offers both existing Trainers and new entrants the opportunity to build a portfolio of evidence under the guidance of an Approved Instructor/Trainer who will act as their mentor.
This Award is suitable for Security Dog Handlers currently working in the security industry or unqualified Trainers considering working in the security dog training sector.
NB: As many Trainees will be working towards becoming a NASDU/HABC Approved Instructor/Trainer attention is drawn to the requirements of that Award and in particular the need to hold a Level 3 training qualification.
The Award of Trainee Trainer will be certificated by NASDU and acknowledged by HABC.
Time served as a Trainee would be of sufficient duration to ensure competency, having a minimum period of 2 years.

The programme is flexible and will include a mixture of theory and practical training delivery, supervised by an Approved Instructor/Trainer.
Assessment and internal moderation of the Trainees portfolio as part of their application to become an Approved Instructor/Trainer will be by NASDU with external moderation carried out by HABC.
NASDU having assessed the applicants CV shall certificate the Trainee at the commencement of the training period in recognition of their commitment.
