CPD Accreditation For You As An Individual!

The purpose of our Trainer Accreditation is to allow students to verify that the person delivering training can evidence their ability to teach in the subject field.

Unlike our Provider Approval where we accredit your company to give the ability to accredit your activities, Trainer Accreditation assesses you as an individual only.

What is a CPD Trainer Card?
The CPD Trainer card is a digital business card that can be used to share your contact details and credentials with your learners. Simply tap your trainer card on any NFC compatible smartphone or scan the QR code to easily share your credentials.
Why do I need to become accredited as a Trainer?
If you were to sit a training activity, how would you know that the person delivering the training has the correct and relevant qualifications/knowledge? The CPD Trainer Accreditation takes out the guesswork. As The CPD Group assesses your background against CPD Standards ensuring you have relevant certificates and documentation to back up your skills and knowledge, we champion your expertise. You can then advertise this to your students to instil trust that you have the credentials to carry out the activity.
My company is already registered as a CPD Provider, can I become a CPD Trainer too?
Yes! Whereas Provider Accreditation considers you as a whole organisation, Trainer Accreditation assesses your personal credentials as an individual Trainer. Please note you will have to create a new account with a different email address.
