Digital Trainer of Excellence

The Digital Trainer of Excellence (DTOE) accreditation has been exclusively developed in partnership with R2 Factory and the CPD Standards Office. This accreditation is exclusive to R2 factory learners, and available solely for those who have completed the R2 Factory programmes. 


R² Factory recently spun out of R² Data Labs, the data arm of Rolls-Royce, and is increasingly a market leader in delivering digital transformation. 

Combining advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning with deep domain knowledge and system engineering expertise. R2 Factory collaborates with Rolls Royce, and partners with other large industrial companies.

The Digital Pioneer Programme

R² Factory’s signature training solution “The Digital Pioneer Programme” enables clients to benefit from three decades of experience in unlocking ‘hard to access data’ for demanding industrial environments. 

Named ‘Digital Pioneers’, individuals who complete the programme become competent trainers who can deliver high quality learning experiences, and design training interventions that are reliable, consistent and ensure positive learning impact for delegates.

Digital Trainer of Excellence Accreditation (DTOE)


DTOE is a prestigious award that recognises and confirms an organisation has successfully completed the programme and is fully fledged to deliver digital skills and transformation internally to colleagues, and create digital transformation. 


The CPD Standards Office is proud to offer the “Digital Trainer of Excellence” accreditation to individuals. Once awarded DTOE status, each individual receives a formal accreditation, digital badge and post-nominals. 

Elevating professional reputation and credibility, the DTOE badge forms a public statement that an individual will:  

  • Compile educational content compiled from trusted sources and authoritative educational origins
  • Deliver a positive and outstanding delegate learning experience 
  • Be committed to remaining relevant in their training approach
