As well as the cost of the course, trainers should also take into account the other commitments required of Training Agents.  These are as follows:

  • Training Agents must hold a current CTA membership
  • They will be required to sign up to annual agreements with the CTA, paying an annual subscription fee which will entitle the Agent to deliver training on behalf of the CTA; this fee is currently £260 plus VAT for the MiDAS annual subscription.
  • Agents are expected to attend Training Agents’ meetings when called by the CTA.

If you are interested in becoming a Training Agent or have any queries regarding the course, please feel free to contact the Training Team at the CTA on 0161 351 1475 or email
