Approved Training Partners

Our Approved Training Partners (ATPs) are internationally-recognised trainers who train auditors, sites, consultants and retailers within BRCGS Global Standards requirements and protocol. All our trainers are professional in their fields, and through training and experience are assured in delivering the correct information to sites on the Global Standards. 

The Approved Training Partner scheme was created to enable the BRCGS Academy to train manufacturing organisations in achieving and maintaining certification against the Global Standards.

The scheme provides a network of professional trainers who deliver BRCGS Academy courses around the world, including Global Standards courses and product safety management courses, such as HACCP and risk management. The scheme has been running successfully for over 12 years and has grown to a network of over 200 ATPs globally. 


Courses run by BRCGS Approved Training Partners (ATPs) use our developed course content which has been written in collaboration with our experts in the  BRCGS technical team and authors of the Global Standards.

Here are some other main benefits of using an Approved Training Partner to deliver your courses:

  • Access to the BRCGS team should they have any queries or questions. This ensures that ATPs are always up to date with the latest developments within the Global Standards, providing manufacturing sites with reassurance that their trainer has the latest information.
  • Your trainer will be highly qualified with many years of experience in your particular sector which ensures all BRCGS ATPs align with the BRCGS training philosophy they go through a rigorous candidate selection process to ensure BRCGS only recruit skilled and knowledgeable trainers.
  • Choosing to work with a BRCGS Approved Training Partner will always give your company a validated and reliable option, rather than sourcing unspecified BRCGS training from another source.
