qualification, indicating 60 hours of learning. The CIEH training

Candidates converting from the CIEH Professional Trainer
Certificate (PTC) or the CIEH Level 3 Award in Training Skills and
Practice (TSP) can have their prior learning accredited towards the
CIEH PTLLS qualification, as these have been mapped to the LLUK
legacy tariff. These candidates are therefore not required to
complete Assignment 1 (micro-teach) but will need to complete
Assignments 2 and 3.
For accreditation of prior learning however candidates' must
submit their PTC or TSP certificate to verify their prior
achievement. If candidates are not able to produce a copy of
their original PTC or TSP certificate, the centre may apply for a
replacement certificate. Candidates should be aware that
there is a cost for replacement certificates. A replacement
certificate must be secured before the candidate undertakes
training for the PTLLS award.
Candidates completing the conversion course must also submit
evidence of delivering at least one successful course within six
months prior to the start of the training programme. Evidence
may take the form of a letter of verification from a client or a
set of course evaluation sheets.
