We now offer a more flexible way of building up your learning and qualifications. The Entry Award, Introductory Certificate, Certificate and Diploma qualification are all built up of separate units. These are available as stand-alone units and can be studied as short courses. Check our approved centres to see who is offering this option.

We will accredit training organisations, consultancies and short course providers to deliver single modules, either exactly as they are on the syllabus, or with additional local activities, visits and content to form a short course. Delegates who pass the exam will receive a Unit Certificate which can be topped-up to the full qualification at a later stage. Delegates who simply attend the course without taking the test will receive a CPD certificate of attendance.

This new provision means that internationally more people will be able to access our qualifications, more businesses will be able to provide the modules as part of their core training or induction programmes and more professionals will be able to gain credit towards a formal qualification.

Costs are set locally by the individual provider.
