Why have your course accredited?
Having your course accredited by the IAPC&M indicates to potential students/delegates that you are consistently demonstrating and providing the highest levels of professional standards in the industry.
We do not specify what your course title should be, rather we work to support you in gaining accreditation for your course.
Accreditation is valid for three years provided your annual renewal fee is maintained.
Every three years all our training providers complete our verification process to ensure that they continue to uphold the standards required by the IAPC&M.
Course Accreditation Options
Course accreditations have an equivelancy level which is derived from comparisions to several educational frameworks. This ensures they are representative of the vocational requirements suggested by educational bodies at each respective level. The higher the level, the more time and difficulty the course is likely to require.
We offer five options/levels of training course accreditation. Additionally, you can choose Accredited Professional Development (APD) for any course that is outside the criteria as shown below:
