CPD Accreditation

Training Courses

We offer CPD accreditation for face-to-face or online training courses for specific topics or syllabuses. A CPD Qualification Standards accredited course will not only attract more delegates and provide business growth opportunities but will enable you to gain access to our network of trainers and providers. This will allow you to share best practice with providers who are expert in their field. In addition, by gaining access to our research you will get good insight into what delegates from various industries really want from their provider, trainer or instructor.

Seminars, Events and Conferences

CPD Qualification Standards accredits seminars, events and conferences. These could be focused on small or large groups of individuals, learning face-to-face or via other formats.

We are also able to accredit other events including: forums, networking events and discussion groups. The list is not exhaustive. And we would consider any other events that you may hold.

From our experience of accrediting numerous activities, we have found that accreditation enables repeat business and for you to charge more in some cases. Furthermore, accredited courses are more attractive to delegates and so facilitates marketing, leading to increased take-up.

Lecturers and Speakers

When accrediting speakers, we consider their experience and expertise of speaking in front of large and small groups as well as knowledge of their chosen field. So, what are the benefits of becoming accredited?

If you are a lecturer or speaker, CPD accreditation provides you with greater opportunities to gain further employment. Professionals are required to undertake a certain number of CPD hours each year and are therefore more likely to be drawn to presentations run by lecturers who are CPD accredited. As the number of professional bodies increase, accreditation will allow you to enter and expand into these new markets. In addition, by becoming accredited, your chances of securing in-house speaking events with companies requiring employees to undertake CPD will improve.


At CPD Qualification Standards we will guide you through the accreditation process and help to make it as easy, accessible and affordable as possible for you to become an accredited CPD employer. We understand the ever-increasing responsibilities and pressures on employers to not only employ and retain competent employees, but to now also become educators. We are available to facilitate this process and support you every step of the way.
