Approval process 

Roz Phillips, OHTA Development Manager, administers the process to approve training providers who meet the criteria. Roz also investigates any complaints or issues.

In practice, approvals may be undertaken by a participating examining board or national association on behalf of OHTA.

Where a course provider wishes to run courses in several countries, any IOHA national associations impacted will be consulted prior to approval being granted for those countries.
