CPD accreditation

A training programme can be accredited to provide external verification of the quality of the training. By evaluating your training programme and measuring its effectiveness, we can support you in developing effective strategies to meet your business objectives. These may include promoting excellence within the company, providing cost-effective training or meeting specified learning outcomes.

Successful achievement of CPD accreditation signifies that the company's programme meets the following key criteria:

  • Transparency – participants can easily identify the potential value
  • Quality – the training must be delivered to the highest possible standards
  • Professional development – the programme must deliver tangible benefits to our members in relation to their professional development

CII accreditation is not a requirement for members to claim CII CPD hours. It does, however, provide formal recognition, valuable external benchmarking and tangible business benefits.


  • Supports recruitment and retention through external verification and sector benchmarking of quality standards
  • Supports achievement and maintains consistency of standards
  • Promotes and underpins best practice within an organisation or training team - encouraging innovation and excellence whilst promoting professionalism and qualifications
  • Assists in demonstrating that employees are trained to high standards, which can lead to winning business and revenue generation

The process

You will need to be able to confirm that your training meets the CPD accreditation standards.

Accreditation fees

The accreditation benchmarking fees reflect the scope of the work involved. We would be pleased to provide a bespoke fee in our proposal.
