Are courses fully accredited by a national awarding body?

Yes, our courses are accredited by the leading worldwide bodies, ITEC, VTCT and CPD.

If your course is not properly accredited by a trusted provider it MAY not be acceptable for insurance purposes and therefore jeopardise your chances of employment. Some course providers may claim courses are recognised by REPs, this is insufficient. REPs are not an awarding body and not an indicator of quality.
