This course will outline in detail the ETP Scheme, defining and breaking down in detail what is required under each of the five Sections. The course will equip participants with a complete understanding of what is required from each question in the Scheme.  The course will also equip participants with methodologies, best practice and templates to support them as they progress through the Scheme.  As part of the course participants will start the process of assessing what they currently have in place in their organisation against what is required under the scheme and in this way devise a gap analysis of what to embrace, amend and prioritise throughout the application process.
