The ELC Process
1. First, you must register to become a Scheme Member and accrue a sufficient amount of service before you can submit a claim. Please see link for further details
2. Submit an enquiry to Frontier Risks Group (FRG) for Option 2 of our SRMC Course.
3. Complete and submit an ELC claim, approved by an authorised Education Staff if you are in service or your Single Service Representative if you are out of service. For further details regarding claiming out of service, ex-service personnel should read the following Ex-service Personnel.
4. ELCAS will then check your eligibility for funding and if approved will send you a Claim Authorisation Note (CAN)
5. Once you have received your CAN, Frontier Risks Group (ELCAS Approved Training Provider) will then enrol you onto the course and require your student contribution (20%). YOU MUST submit your CAN to Frontier Risks Group to successfully enrol on the course.
6. Finally, upon completion of the programme, you must complete a Course Evaluation Form via the ELCAS website.
To claim Enhanced Learning Credits funding you are required to complete the required length of eligible service before completing the ELC claim form and prior to commencing the course of study for which ELC support is being claimed.
Before being eligible to make an ELC claim, individual scheme members must have completed not less than four years eligible service to claim at the lower tier of funding (up to £1,000 per claim instalment) and eight years service for the higher tier (up to £2,000 per claim instalment). Only service accumulated since 1 April 2000 may be counted as eligible service for the purposes of the ELC scheme.
You are entitled to make three ELC claims in total, however, you can only make one claim per financial year (1 April – 31 March) but can also claim up to ten years after leaving the services.
Claimants are required to pay a minimum of 20% of the course fee for each ELC claim and the MOD will fund the remainder up to the claimant's tier limit.
Retrospective ELC claims are not permitted, claim forms must be received by ELCAS at least 25 clear working days prior to the course start date/registration date. You must ensure that you have enough time to receive the Claim Authorisation Note (CAN) to present to your chosen ELCAS Approved Training Provider before the course starts.
It is important that you do not set up a loan/credit agreement for the full amount under any circumstances.
Do not pay a deposit before you receive your Claim Authorisation Note (CAN).

If you have any questions, require further information or if would like to enrol on this programme please feel free to contact us
As a Colonel in British Army, I attended the course myself and have since sent several staff members to attend.
The course gives an in depth understanding of security risk issues and how to tackle them, imparting life-long skills that can be employed in a wide range of situations both inside the forces and in future civilian employment. The quality of the lecturers is excellent, from post-graduate level academics to published authors and top end security professionals. Students quickly improve their verbal presentations, report writing and planning skills through practical exercises under pressure. The SRMC also provides several qualifications recognised in the security sector and helps individuals develop their professional networks.
A number of military personnel as well as Service leavers on the SRMC found it invaluable. It would be an ideal course to be able to access through the ELCAS route.
