Training Accreditation?


I'm an IT Training Consultant, although I don't have many years of experience currently.  I am looking at some sort of training accreditation or certification, but don't know what I should go for.  I've heard of TAP and a few others.

So, what do official training certificates do you hold, or do you think are worth holding, and how much should I be looking to pay?  I realise this isn't going to be cheap, but I'm not looking for anything overly extensive, just some kind of official accrediation of some sort to boost my CV somewhat.

Any ideas gratefuly received.  Thanks!

  1. training accreditation


    If you’re planning on staying in IT then probably IITT as suggested is your best route.

    Other options are Institute of Training and Occupational Learning – they are who I’m accredited through because they were much more open to accepting experience rather than just a paper trail.  They still require it to have been recorded though so I do suggest you keep documentation of all the experience you have.

    There’s also what was TrainerBase and is now the Certified Learning Professional organisation (I think that’s what it’s called – google Trainer Base or Peter Mayes and you’ll find them).

    CIPD have new qualifications that replace the old Certificate in Training Practise

    So there are lots of options open to you – including programmes that are accredited by these bodies and can offer certification.  We run a workshop called ‘How to be  a Brain Friendly Trainer’ which is ITOL accredited.  We particularly work with people from technical backgrounds who want to create interesting and meaningful learning experiences for their participants.

    Good luck with your search and let us know what you choose.

  2. The LPA


    Thanks for the mention. We are the Learning Practitioners’ Association (LPA) and we run the TrainerBase

    We have devised a Standard for learning and development practitioners that evicences competence / capability; you prove the you can do what you say you do. This is our Certified Learning Practitioner (CLP) accrediation and those that have undertaken it have found it a huge benefit as a development process and as a differentiator in applying for contracts.

    The LPA is an Edexcel centre and runs a level 5 qualification; BTEC level 5 professional Certificate in Learning Practice Management (CertLPM); based on the same Standard as the accreditation (implication is CLP is underpinned by a level 5 qualification as CertLPM is a route to getting CLP.

    The LPA, its accreditation and qualificaton are new in the market but active accredited members are making positive use of their education and achievement.
