NCCA Name & Logo Use

The NCCA name & logo is trademark registered, which means only NCCA members are entitled to use it to promote themselves.

You may not use the NCCA name & logo until your membership has been approved & payment has been arranged. Failure to comply may result in your application being rejected.

As you have completed training through an equivalent training provider, you are not permitted to advertise using ‘NCCA trained’ or ‘NCCA approved’.

Misuse of the name or logo by non-members is in breach of Consumer Protection legislation and will be reported to Trading Standards for prosecution.
