For those technicians not previously registered on the Parlour Safe scheme, there is a process of assessment to evaluate the appropriate level of Parlour Safe registration.

All applicants must firstly register their contact details on the Parlour Safe database.  Details of how to register can be found on the following link -

Parlour Safe Category 1

Once the candidate has registered, he or she can now apply for Exceptional Experience by submiting a CV and portfolio of evidence which outlines current qualifications to This portfolio should document their experience as a milking equipment technician and show evidence of continued training and development. The candidate will then be asked to conduct a telephone interview to confirm the most appropriate Parlour Safe level that applies to him or her, be advised of the next steps and advice on the candidate's options can then be offered.

We are happy to consider any candidate through this process, independent or otherwise affiliated, provided they have the necessary experience and they have not previously registered with the Parlour Safe Scheme through Grandparent Rights or otherwise.
