Add Instant, Professional Credibility To Your Training Or Learning Experience, Whilst Selling To A Much Wider Audience At The Same Time

At this moment in time there is a huge demand for CPD accredited courses, events, conferences, speakers and coaches who can deliver high quality training at scale to small, medium and large companies across the globe.

Do You Provide High Quality Learning Activities Such As Courses, Coaching, Speaking, Events Or Conferences?

If so, then we’d like to invite you to become a verified CPD provider so you can deliver your training or learning experience at scale to a much wider audience.

CPD, which stands for continuing professional development, has been around for a long time and is undertaken by thousands of professionals from all different sorts of industries on a daily basis, to help them keep up to date with their knowledge and skills.

All that’s required is an independent assessor to go through your learning experience to check that it meets the criteria. If it does, you can get a CPD approved certificate which will allow you to go out and provide these professionals with CPD points.

Our members are able to offer their newly accredited activities to markets in the UK, Ireland, Europe, USA, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and The Middle East.

The assessment process takes around 6 weeks and there’s no PASS or FAIL philosophy. Instead, we’ll work with you to bring your activity up to the standards that are required in the industry.

At the end of the assessment process we GUARANTEE that you will be a recognised supplier of CPD accredited training at the HIGHEST level.
