ASDA undertakes to conduct random audits where a company’s courseware use policies will be assessed to ensure that courseware has not been used or distributed illegally.
The audit will include:
- Documenting the ASDA Authorised Training Provider processes used to track purchase and sell ASDA courseware.
- Quantifying the type and volume of ASDA courseware purchased and sold by the ASDA Authorised Training Provider.
- Reconciling the ASDA Authorised Training Provider records with the ASDA Operations records.
- Confirming that courseware completion certificates are being used correctly: one certificate for each learner trained using ASDA courseware, unless more than one course was attended; no certificates issued for non-ASDA courses.
- Should an ASDA Authorised Training Provider be found to have sold more ASDA courseware than purchased from ASDA the Authorised Training Provider will be required to match ASDA records when discrepancies are greater than 1%. If found, the ASDA Authorised Training Provider will be required to pay a sum equal to the cost of the discrepancy in ASDA as well as pay for the audit process and or any legal fees should it be deemed necessary.
- Upon notification of the discrepancy, the Authorised Training Provider will have 30 days to resolve the matter. Failure to resolve the matter within 30 days may result in termination of Authorised Training Provider status, as well as additional legal action.
