For all new stewards the “Organising Stewards” training is the one you need to complete in order to become ERA (Employment Relations Act 1999) accredited.

For existing stewards/ officers, there is a need to keep our skills current, in the form of a refresher course for ERA at least every 5 years or appropriate training and development (which has been recorded by the region) within the 5 year period.

Please note course should be attended wherever possible at the venue closest to the branch.

Please feel free to ring me if you have any further queries.
