Candidate registration

You will need to register into the Trading Standards Qualification Framework (TSQF).

This registration is done by completing the candidate registration form A. A purchase order number must accompany the form.

The initial candidate registration lasts for three years.  After which point a yearly registration fee will be applicable. When this is relevant for you, you will receive a letter from TSI.

Everything you need for the TSQF can be found on the dedicated pages within this website:

When you are ready to take any exams, you will need to complete and return candidate exam entry form (Form C) (November 2014 exam cycle registration now closed). Exams are held in November each year. 

Portfolios of evidence assessment will be managed by the internal assessor and verifier which is a person within your local authority. More information on their roles and responsibilities can be found in the portfolio of evidence section.
