Assessor Qualifications

It all started with the D32/D33 Units. These were later replaced by the A1 Award. Then finally, the A1 was replaced in 2010 by the current suite of assessor qualifications. 

At Brooks and Kirk, we offer every assessor qualification there is to choose from. Below, you will find all of our assessor courses along with a short description of who each qualification is designed for.
