In May 2018, announced they would be making changes to the way the ORDIT scheme works. They are making these changes on 1 April 2019, and wanted to let you know more about them. They have issued this statement today.
Currently, only 60% of instructors in an ORDIT establishment need to be registered. This will be changed to 100%.
Instructors will also need to have achieved a grade ‘A’ on their latest standards check to join ORDIT, instead of being an ADI for 12 months.
All ORDIT instructors will need to offer developmental training to other ADIs.
As part of the changes, the fees will also be simplified. From 1 April 2019, it will cost:
ORDIT trainers will also no longer need to have a standards check unless asked by the Registrar.
In the old scheme, all ORDIT establishments also needed to undergo a premises inspection, in the new scheme this will only be required for those with five or more instructors.
The registration period for members will change to four years, in line with the ADI register.
We’ve published the new syllabus and ORDIT assesment on GOV.UK.
The old scheme has now closed and we won’t be accepting any new applications on to it.
Thank you for your all feedback and support with these changes.
