How it works – Our Three Stage Process


Once registering your formal commitment to working with you, our experienced team will take time to understand what you offer and how best to move forward.


The assessment will be over the phone or in person. We will look at your delegates’ learning experience – from when they first hear of you right through to when they have completed training and you are following up.


Once the assessment is complete we can then award accreditation. The whole process should be completed within 8 weeks – this is why your first year with us includes this time free of charge and so your first year’s subscription covers 14.5 months.
