IPSQA® DefraQual™

IPSQA® DefraQual™ is the world’s only ISO 17024:2012 compliant role certification against DEFRA Flood Rescue Concept of Operations training module outlines, providing independent assessment by specially trained assessors, robust quality assurance, evidence retention and a consolidated real-time QR verifiable transcript.

IPSQA does not offer training but allows candidates with previous training from other sources to participate in the new certification program.

IPSQA has identified the theory and practical elements from the training modules prescribed in the DEFRA Flood Rescue Concept of Operations and codified these in two parts: Part A (Theory) and Part B (Skills). 

Using industry experts who have undertaken additional training to conduct assessments under IPSQA’s ISO17024:2012 certification system,  water rescue professionals can now provide proof they are competent and ready to respond, regardless of their training journey.

Unlike our Certificate in Public Safety (CertPubS®), IPSQA DefraQual is based off a national standard (DEFRA) and this does not require post-training experience as part of certification requirements (i.e. Part C). 

Any training, one certification.

IPSQA DefraQual™ is easy as 1, 2, 3.
