General Procedure for Course Accreditation Levels 2, 3 or 4
All of the courses accredited by ACCPH have to adhere to a strict set of criteria to ensure quality of training.
Word doc printable Initial Course Application form.
You will need to supply copies of the course manual and any other supporting material. Please make it very clear on your application which parts are relevant to the course. If the course does not have a manual/workbook you will need to expalin very clearly why it is not necessary.
You may send us pdf’s of all materials asked for on the Initial Course Application via email. All documents submitted must be page numbered and clearly titled. If the course includes video or audio lessons these must be sent on discs or flash drives. The Initial Course Application form must contain original signatures only. Please return this by post. We will pair this up with the supporting evidence emailed to us.
Ensure that your organisation has become a member of ACCPH and the relevant person of responsibility has applied for and been accepted as an Accredited or Senior Member. (The personal membership can be waived for some Ofqal regulated bodies).
Pay the non-refundable course accreditation application fee, if applicable.
The Accreditation Process
ACCPH will review the materials you have sent with your application form. If there are any points that need clarification we will contact you. The accreditation procedure is halted until these have been rectified.
When we are satisfied that your course is accreditable we will let you know within two working days.
In some rare cases we may feel a site visit is necessary, if we do the costs of this will be passed on to you.
Course accreditation is subject to the course provider continuing to meet our Course Accreditation criteria. It is renewed every 5 years or sooner if the course changes. We need to be notified of any changes to keep your accreditation valid.
Accreditation Process for Additional Courses
Please use the Additional Courses application form to do this. These accreditations are usually much faster than the initial one as we only have to check the quality of the course.
