Join a prestigious, global community of experienced trainers, coaches & educators
When you become accredited by the CPD Standards Office, you get more than just a mark of accreditation with the CPD logo.
You also become part of our CPD Standards Community, along with over 1,000 other accredited providers. This community is growing stronger every day, with its huge range of connections to membership organisations, employers and universities.
Our community is also supported by the on-going work of the CPD Research Project. This means that just as your clients and delegates can be sure that your training, learning or coaching activities are independently assessed to the highest standard, you too can be sure that other members of the CPD Standards Community have also been assessed the exact same way. This gives you peace of mind as you exchange best practice and network with other providers, professional bodies, universities and authorities.
"The bottom line is this. Becoming accredited with The CPD Standards Office is a really great way to get more business."
