On behalf of the UK police service, UKROEd develops course specifications, instructor and trainer qualifications and requirements, supported by a robust quality assurance regime.
The provision of courses to police forces has been arranged on a force by force basis, each police force deciding the best way of procuring local services. This can range from a full European procurement process to a local memorandum of understanding.
Licensing brings about a legally binding arrangement with course providers, instructors and trainers, ensuring compliance with the national requirements for course provision.
All NDORS courses and associated material have been registered with the Intellectual Property Office and are therefore protected by law.
