There’s a secret hidden in plain sight when it comes to CPD Accreditation, and we’re going to share it with you.

You do not need anyone but YOU to provide accreditation for your training. You can even do it without Open CPD.

We simply built the tools to make it easy for you, bringing what has been seen as a ‘dark art’ into the light. 

What is self-accreditation

Self-accreditation is a process where the key elements or features of a training programme or event are published alongside with verifiable certification. It is available to any organisation  or  business without the need to go through an intermediary or third-party.

The accredited value of a course or event is inherent in the content, it’s structure and the credibility of the provider. In self-accreditation, these features are “baked into” the certificates themselves, so eliminating the need for external bodies.

By self-accrediting, organizations provide evidence that they adhere to high standards of quality and demonstrate their commitment to continuous improvement. Verification of the provider and course charactersitics as well as the authenticity of the certificate are essential parts of self-accreditation.

NB: some exclusions apply where qualifications or designations are regulated. This differs by country and profession.

The vast majority of content is unregulated suitable for and self-accreditation.
